Area Middle School Suspends Dozens Of Students After Walkout

Pittsfield High School students send a message outside the school early Tuesday during a rally in response to the recent mass shooting at a high school in Parkland Fla

The suspect had left school prior to the arrival of the officers.

Students across Tampa Bay are expected to participate in a national school walkout on March 14 - the one-month anniversary of the shooting at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School. It circulated on social media Thursday evening and Friday morning.

The suspect made statements to police corroborating his involvement in the threat. He was turned over to Juvenile Detention Center authorities and is expected to go before a juvenile court judge Thursday.

Police say the student was in a fight Thursday afternoon and afterwards, was overheard on the phone talking about getting guns and shooting up the school.

In a letter sent to parents, East Coweta Principal Steve Allen wrote that the student had not made any articulated threats and that the gun was removed from the student's possession without incident. At this time, there are no known prevailing threats against Chandler High School students, staff or parents. "Students and staff having views differing from those of the walkout would have to have an equal opportunity to express their views".

Students gather in front of Pittsfield High School on Tuesday morning for a rally in response to the recent shooting at a high school in Parkland Fla. that left 17 people dead

The Spokane County Sheriff's Office asks that parents talk to their children about the importance to report threats and "the need to find out if the posts is just being "shared" or if they know who/where the post originated".

School officials also added that, "Every day, students at all GCS alternative programs are searched, scanned with a hand-held metal detector and are not allowed to carry backpacks".

The school was locked down for around 25 minutes at midday after administrators received a report of a student with a firearm on campus. "@SDSheriff takes any threats to our schools very seriously". Individually, we count on our students not to bring contraband to school, and collectively, we need them to commit to alerting adults when they become aware of a safety concern on campus. Your input is greatly valued as it is our responsibility to investigate issues that could impact the educational experience of our students.

No other information regarding the threat has been released. Upon prior notice of students' intention to demonstrate with a walkout, district and site administration will create a safe and secure environment for students who wish to protest.

Thank you for your continued support of Northwest High Magnet School and Omaha Public Schools.
