Mohonasen Central School District officials said that a Pinewood Elementary School student allegedly brought bullets onto a school bus this morning. It was the second such incident of the morning. A bus driver also received bullets from two students during the same time period, officials said.
None of the students had weapon, they said.
The incidents are separate from a threat made that sent Mohonasen High School and Draper Middle School into lockdowns over the noon hour.
According to a district letter to Pinewood parents, the district’s bus garage received a call from someone who said she believed a student had bullets.
The district’s school resource officer and director of security then met the student at his bus stop. It’s not clear if they recovered any from the student.
A Mohonasen bus driver also received two bullets from two individual students, authorities said. The driver contacted the bus garage and alerted the district, the letter read.
School officials have determined where each student came to possess the bullets. The investigation is continuing, the letter read.
“The district will apply appropriate consequences upon completion of the investigation in accordance with the district’s Code of Conduct,” the letter read.
