Two Warner Robins High School students and a Northside Elementary School student are accused of bringing weapons to school.
A student tipped off administrators Monday at the high school on South Davis Drive, said Beth McLaughlin, the school district's director of community and school affairs.
A school resource officer investigated and found a student with a BB gun in a backpack about 9:15 a.m., according to Warner Robins police records.
Later that morning, a teacher reported another possible weapon, and an administrator found another student with a BB gun in a backpack in an unrelated incident, McLaughlin said in an email in response to a Telegraph inquiry.

Warner Robins Assistant Police Chief John Wagner said charges are pending against a 15-year-old and 16-year-old through the Houston County juvenile division.
Both of them will be charged with possession of a weapon in a school safety zone, Wagner said in a text.
Although McLaughlin said she could not discuss specifics of the students' cases due to privacy concerns, she did state that student conduct guidelines indicate "any student who brings any type of weapon to school shall be subject to discipline."
Depending on the individual, the punishment could range from detention to long-term suspension or expulsion.
High school parents were alerted about the discoveries through a phone message.
Additionally, an 8-year-old first-grader at Northside Elementary is accused of bringing an Airsoft gun to school Tuesday, according to a Warner Robins police release.
The weapon was still in its original packing.
Charges cannot be filed due to the age of the child, the release said. The child will face administrative punishment through the school system.
