In February 2011, a 14-year-old student was charged with bringing a dangerous weapon to school in addition to disorderly conduct and disrupting a school assemble charges. Police determined the weapon the student had brought to school wasn’t illegal but violated school rules. The weapon was not a firearm, according to police.
Farmer classified Friday’s search of school grounds as planned but random, saying similar searches are conducted throughout the school year. The search yielded a small quantity of marijuana found inside another student’s backpack.
“The high school administration has taken appropriate action,” Farmer said, referring to the owner of the backpack.
