The La Grande School District experienced a safety incident involving a La Grande High School student on a bus this morning. It was reported that the student had made comments about carrying guns.
School administration immediately worked with law enforcement from Union County Sheriff’s Office and La Grande Police Department to investigate the report. The student was identified; some witnesses on the bus were also interviewed and cooperated during the investigative process.
The report was determined to be unsubstantiated.
Both the La Grande School District and our local law enforcement partners take matters of student safety and school security seriously and will continue to have an increased presence in our schools.
