Three Beebe students have been expelled for a calendar year a month after a December gun threat.

The Beebe School Board voted to accept Superintendent Chris Nail’s recommendation Monday to expel the students. District officials would not say whether any of the expulsions were related to the threat, but the district had initially said that two students had been barred from returning to campus until hearings could be held. Monday’s expulsion hearings were the district’s first since it learned Dec. 9 that a high school student had threatened to bring a gun to campus, resulting in an investigation, heightened security and the students not being allowed to return to school.
