Police responded to the report and removed the student without incident, Roberts said. The student is currently in police custody, though it is unclear if they will face any charges.
“Keeping our students and staff safe is a community-wide effort. Parents, please remember to talk to your child about your expectations for behavior at home and at school. Remind them of the school policies that prohibit weapons on school premises and the serious consequences they will face is they violate those rules.”
