PITTSBURGH - Students left Sunnyside Elementary School on Friday with more than homework in their hands. They also had letters to their parents about an incident that happened this week.
Channel 11 contacted the Pittsburgh Public Schools district after police sources said an 11-year-old girl brought knives to school.
School officials later confirmed the incident, saying two kitchen knives were discovered in a fifth-grader’s locker.
When questioned, the girl said she brought the knives to school after an earlier argument with friends on social media. She reportedly told the principal she didn’t plan on using them and that she brought them for protection.
No one was hurt, and officials said the fifth-grader is being disciplined.
