After creating a special waiver for families, students in the FFA chapter at Buffalo Creek Middle School will be able to attend a conference they can train with firearms.
Students and families were originally told Monday they would not be able to attend an overnight summer trip to the FFA Florida Outdoor Adventures camp because of the concerns over the use of firearms.
The course includes pistols, rifles, shotguns and archery. About four years ago, students were allowed to earn hunter safety certification through the Florida Wildlife Conservation Commission during the conference.
A district letter sent out Wednesday, signed by Doug Wagner, director of adult, career and technical education, said the district will allow students to attend the camp after signing a special waiver of liability.
