It does not get any worse than when an eighth-grade student brings a loaded gun to school. That was the case that folded on Wednesday.
The officials in school revealed that a teacher pointed out to the administration that a student potentially had a weapon, following something she witnessed in a school hallway.
The warning led the school to start an immediate investigation into the issue. They also added that other students came forward with needed information to be able to take the eighth-grade student into custody.
Reports indicate that the student involved has been removed from the building and will not be returning to the scene.
A statement was also released by the district on Wednesday evening: “As with all matters of student safety, we take this event extremely seriously, and have acted accordingly, utilizing both district resources and the juvenile justice system. Building and district leadership are grateful those who reported the weapon, recognizing it as a threat to the safety of the school community, and encourage all students to speak to a building staff member if ever a situation exists that could potentially place them or others in danger.”
