An incident at Tiyan High School this morning was handled quickly by the school’s administration without the need for a lockdown.
The Tiyan High School administration was on alert this morning after a student reportedly threatened to bring a weapon to school.
GDOE Spokeswoman Isa Baza says the school’s administration became aware through social media as well as through information received from a parent.
She further states that Guam police were able to find the student and detain him about 6:30 this morning.
There was no disruption to school activities. Classes continued, uninterrupted today at Tiyan High.
Baza said the incident is under investigation and the appropriate disciplinary action will be taken.
She said threatening to bring a weapon to school is a serious offense that may lead to suspension or expulsion.
