Today at Riverside Jr/Sr High School, administration was informed that a student had a gun at school. Principal David Norton immediately contacted law enforcement and removed the student from class, searched his belongings and no firearm was located on the student's person nor in the school. There was no imminent threat to students or staff at any time.
The Morrow County School District and law enforcement take this situation very seriously. The student has been removed from school, a threat assessment will be conducted and law enforcement will continue the investigation.
Students, parents, staff and community members are encouraged to use SafeOregon, a statewide tip line for reporting student safety threats. The website is www.safeoregon.com.
As always, the Morrow County School District takes a proactive approach to ensuring school security and student safety.
