Lindale elementary student brings knife to school

LINDALE, TX (KLTV) - A Lindale elementary student brings a knife to school, Monday, and voices threats against a staff member.

According to Lindale ISD, the principal of Velma Penny Elementary School was told by a student that a classmate had a knife in his possession.

Campus officials approached the student and the student revealed the weapon to them.

The staff member was never directly threatened by the student, nor were any students or staff members directly threatened with the weapon.

The Lindale School District tells us that this is a serious violation of the Lindale ISD Code of Conduct and appropriate disciplinary action has been taken by the district.

Lindale ISD would not tell us the age or grade of the student or if the disciplinary action prevents the student from being in school today.
