Waterloo second grader brings knife to school

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- Parents of Edison Elementary students should be expecting a call from the Waterloo Community School District on Friday night.

The calls are being made because a second grader brought a knife into school on Thursday.

Sharon Miller, Director of School and Community Relations, says a second grader brought a 1.5 inch Swiss Army knife to school and was showing it off to classmates.

Miller says one of the students did exactly what they were taught and told a teacher.

She says no threats were made and there were no injuries.

School officials confiscated the knife and the parents were called for a conference.

Miller says phone calls will go out to parents tonight alerting them of the situation and the student will be disciplined.
