Jenks student found after trying to take knife onto bus


Jenks Public Schools says a student who tried to take a knife onto a middle school bus Monday morning has been found.

A spokesman for the district says the student tried to get on at a middle school bus stop near 96th and Memorial. The bus driver noticed the knife and acted quickly to prevent the student from getting on the bus, according to the district.

Neither the student nor the knife got onto the bus, and no one was hurt. Authorities located the student a few hours later.

"Appropriate action has been taken to ensure the continued safety and security of all Jenks Public Schools’ students," spokesman Rob Loeber said.

The student who had the knife never showed up to school, the district says.

Here's the message the district sent out to parents about the incident:

This message is to make you aware of an incident that occurred this morning at a Middle School bus stop. A student attempted to board a bus with a knife. The bus driver took quick, decisive action to prevent the student from boarding the bus. No students were harmed during this incident. Law enforcement officers are actively searching for the student. Security has been increased at the Middle School and a police presence will be maintained throughout the day. Again, all students arrived at school safely and the school day will continue as normal. The safety and security of our students is always the number one priority at Jenks Public Schools.
