Greater Latrobe student accused of bringing pocket knife to school

Monday, Sept. 23, 2013, 8:06 p.m.
 

A Greater Latrobe High School student was charged with possession of a weapon after allegedly bringing a pocket knife onto school grounds on Sept. 12, state police at Greensburg said.

The juvenile, whose name was not released, was charged before Westmoreland County juvenile authorities, police said. Further details about the incident were not released.

The school board policy prohibits students from possessing and bringing weapons and replicas of weapons into any school district buildings or onto school property. The board may expel any student who violates the weapons policy.

Superintendent Judith Swigart said Monday she could not comment on the specific issue and declined comment on whether the incident occurred in a school building or elsewhere on school property.

The superintendent said she could not comment on any student discipline that might result from the incident.

“Each case is investigated fully and appropriate discipline is issued,” Swigart said.
