Student brings weapon to Edgewood Middle School in Ninety Six

The administration of Greenwood School District 52 (Ninety Six) is dealing with another issue involving a student bringing a weapon to school. 

On Thursday morning a student at Edgewood Middle School was threatening to bring a weapon to school.  These threats were made aware to the school’s administration and the School Resource Officer by some students.  The school isolated the student and began an immediate investigation along with Law Enforcement. A preliminary search did not find a weapon.

Later in the afternoon, two students reported that the student had shown the weapon to them while on the bus the day before (March 29). This information was received by school officials and later verified from bus camera video after dismissal on Thursday. Wednesday’s video footage did reveal some type of weapon in the student’s possession on the bus. The identification of the type of weapon is being investigated by the 96 PD.  In addition an expanded search of the school by the Ninety Six Police Department after dismissal on Thursday did NOT locate a weapon on campus.

Appropriate actions were taken by the District, while Local Law Enforcement took necessary actions due to the nature of the incident.  The student will not return to school premises until the results of a disciplinary hearing are determined.

This comes at the heels of another concern of a student with a weapon at the High School but was determined to be only rumors.  These rumors create massive disruptions within the school district and parents are encouraged to discuss these incidents with their children.  It’s very important for kids to understand the potential trouble they can be in when they are involved in such incidents. 

The safety of students is the District’s foremost concern.  The procedures and policies in place help the district and its schools maintain a safe environment for all students.

Any parents with questions or concerns should contact the school or district administration.
