Central High School parents were notified by the school’s principal late this morning about an incident that happened earlier today.

Principal, Lisa Anderson, said Central staff were alerted by students about the possibility of a student with a weapon. 

She said administrators responded immediately and questioned the student.  A BB gun was located and was confiscated by school police.  School officials say it wasn’t loaded and was not presented in a threatening manner.  No one was harmed.

According to Anderson, school officials are investigating, and disciplinary procedures will be followed based on the findings.    

Anderson commends the students who came forward to report what they saw.
