For reasons that we still do not understand, the teacher did not notify administration or local police about this incident. Letter sent to Lake Central parents (emphasis in original)
September 24, 2018-Lake Central administrators notified parents today that a student brought a gun to school on Friday. “I reach out to you to dispel potential misinformation and to provide assurances about student safety in our building. The incident involved a community member coming onto the school campus, exiting his vehicle and approaching an open area of the building where students were present. This individual had a side arm that was visible to those in the area. He returned the gun to his car, then returned to the building to discuss an issue with our teacher.” According to the statement administrators were made aware of the incident after students had left school on Friday. According to the statement, another student notified a parent who then contacted school officials regarding the incident. “For reasons that we still do not understand, the teacher did not notify administration or local police about this incident.” the statement reads. The teacher was not identified and the statement did not suggest what, if any, action would be taken against the teacher.
The statement concludes “We ask that all families discuss with all students the importance of sharing with a trusted adult any time weapons are seen at our schools or any time they feel threatened by the actions of others. “See something, hear something, say something” remains one of our best defenses against threats to school safety. “
