There were a few tense moments in the Lapeer Community School District Thursday during a weapon's threat investigation.
The district issued a notice that they were aware of a rumor of a potential weapon on a transfer bus from Lapeer High School in the afternoon.
According to Superintendent Matt Wandrie, local law enforcement promptly investigated the claim and concluded it was unfounded.
Making unfounded claims of this nature will not be tolerated, according to district officials.
The district will deal with the students responsible to ensure they understand the seriousness of making unfounded claims.
"We want to assure the safety and security of our students and staff is our highest priority. We have taken all the steps necessary to ensure a safe and secure environment," he said. The district will continue to coordinate efforts with local law enforcement to ensure the safety of school and community.
We ask that you respect those involved by refraining from disseminating unsubstantiated information through social media or any other outlet, he noted.
