SALISBURY — The mother of a Shive Elementary School student faces a misdemeanor charge of possessing a weapon on school ground after a confrontation with a maintenance worker.

A criminal summons was issued for Jennifer Phillips last week for possession of a firearm on school grounds after she had a pistol with her on campus. With rare exceptions, including on-duty law enforcement officers, people are not allowed to carry guns on school property.

A Rowan County Sheriff’s Office incident report states Phillips had a pistol on her hip Friday, Nov. 5 when she signed her child out of school. Phillips was spotted by a school maintenance worker who said she could not be on campus with the gun. Phillips disregarded what the worker said, the incident report states. Her child came out and they left.

The report further states a deputy went to speak with Phillips on Friday, Nov. 12, about the incident, and she told the deputy she forgot it was on her side when she entered the school.
