Corunna Schools Superintendent Dave Moore provided Corunna Now with an update to an earlier situation that sent Corunna High School into a lock down status. The update was sent to parents on Tuesday evening, Moore said. The letter reads in part:
"Early this evening, school officials and police found a Co-2 BB gun in the building. The matter continues to be under police investigation.
While we are disappointed situations like this sometimes occur, know that we have procedures and protocol in place to keep our students safe."
Corunna High School was locked down shortly before 12:30pm on Tuesday, immediately after staff was made aware of a student claiming to have a weapon. Police were called and staff went to get the student.
Police questioned the student, searched the student, the student's locker and backpack, and determined that there was no weapon and no threat to students. The lock down was then lifted.
Assistant Superintendent John Fattal told us the gun was found after a tip was received by a student.
