Barb Johnson, mother of a fourth-grader, said the district put out a One-Call to parents “just like they are supposed to.”
Then she added: “I think the school acted quickly and appropriately. I didn’t feel threatened in any way. I didn’t have any concerns.”
Burns said no shots were fired and no one was injured. She didn’t know if the student was a boy or girl or their grade.
Principal Keri Hensley sent home a letter with each of the kindergarten through fifth-grade students after school.
“This incident is an isolated incident and the school day continued and ended without any further problems,” Hensley wrote. “I’m very proud of our students being brave to tell adults when they see or hear something suspicious. We are very fortunate that our staff and students are quick to respond when there is a need.”
