  • Bus Incident We wanted to make you aware that a bus driver confiscated a plastic look-alike knife from an elementary student at pickup near St. James. The student was waving an object in the bus line. The driver heard it was a knife in which the student proclaimed was real. The driver detained the student as he was attempting to enter the bus. Police were called because the student wouldn’t give the knife to the bus driver. It was confirmed to be a plastic look alike hunting knife. We encourage families to discuss the importance of leaving toy weapons at home. Because of how real toy weapons can appear, school personnel must take immediate action to ensure the safety of students. Safety is the top priority at all of our school buildings and we are thankful that this situation has been handled without incident.
