Report of weapon at SM East proves false. SM East administrators sent out a notice to parents Tuesday advising that a rumor about a weapon on the campus had proven to be inaccurate. SM East sent out the following information: “On Monday morning we received an anonymous bullying report concerning the possibility of a weapon on campus. SM East administrators along with the School Resource Officer responded immediately to address the situation. After a thorough investigation, it was determined that there was no validity to the report and no threat to student safety. While this report proved inaccurate, I want to assure you we will remain proactive, vigilant, and committed to providing a safe and secure learning environment for all students and staff. Thank you to our law enforcement partners for their support and keeping our community safe.”
