    Hey guys I'm currently in school to become a secondary education teacher and this week we are observing a classroom at a local high school. I have my concealed permit and had a quick question regarding carrying to the school. Under RCW 9.41.280 RCW 9.41.280: Possessing dangerous weapons on school facilities ? Penalty ? Exceptions. to me it appears if I carry to the school it is perfectly legal for me to be parked in their visitors parking area and place my loaded gun into my locked glove box in my locked car while there on "legitimate business."

    Am I correct in assuming I am being lawful here?

    Thanks in advance.

    Legally, you are allowed to drop off and pick up your child if they are a student at the school. I've left mine secured in my vehicle for the few times I've actually done work inside a WA school.

    Right below the "dropping off and picking up" is this;

    (f) Any nonstudent at least eighteen years of age legally in possession of a firearm or dangerous weapon that is secured within an attended vehicle or concealed from view within a locked unattended vehicle while conducting legitimate business at the school;

    This to me appears to make my actions while visiting the school legal.

    I'm not a attorney.

    I did read the rcw you quoted and I agree with you, it certainly does seem to me, to be legal. Wish a attorney could chime in as I will have a student attending public school here in wa this year.

    I already knew about the drop off pick up, I had no idea about this though. Pretty cool, would be better if we could carry without restrictions though.

    That is correct for WA. We have a 13 yr old grandson we're raising. I always carry when dropping him off or picking him up UNLESS I have to go inside the building. I'm too old and cheap to be a test case over this.

    In OR you can carry on school property if you have a CCW, it's different in WA even with a CPL.

    My son is in first grade, I am in his school every morning to walk him to where he belongs. Concealed means concealed.
