Peninsula High School was on lockdown Friday morning after a weapon was reported on campus.
The school was on modified lockdown — where instruction continues, but no one is in the hallways — at 8:25 a.m. The resource officer had the student in custody by 8:30 a.m., according to a school messenger text that was sent out by Tim Winter, Peninsula High School principal, via phone call and email.
The student had an unloaded gun, Kathy Weymiller, director of district initiatives, said.
"We are fortunate to have students who notified authorities, and a dedicated staff, including resource officers, who genuinely care about our young people, which allowed this very unfortunate situation to be handled with no harm to anyone," Winters said in the message.
Class resumed as normal at 9 a.m.
