Lakewood High School student arrested for school threat

West Hills High School

West Hills High School in Santee

The superintendent said her district investigates all reported safety concerns and takes them seriously.

One of the students in that conversation claimed to "have a gun and 100 rounds of ammo" at their home.

Heidi Tessler, a mother to two students at the school, said one of her children was suspended, but disciplinary action isn't the issue.

After the investigation, the teen who, police say, made the threat was released to the custody of his parents.

The Sheriff's Office began receiving reports of social media posts referring to the threat at the school around 6:45 Friday morning. "Students and staff do not have a First Amendment right to disrupt or interrupt the school day for political advocacy".

Deputies said the threat was not credible and the suspected student did not have access to weapons.

"We're not sanctioning or authorizing student walkouts, but we have encouraged principals to work with students if they want an opportunity to express themselves and show support for the Parkland community", Kennedy said.

Please note: Marshall and Montrose are not planning to participate, given the young age of all of their students.

The 14-year-old was arrested and charged with crimes including threatening to use a risky weapon, the Middlesex District Attorney's office said. The Chesterfield Police Department was made aware of the threat Wednesday at 10:30pm. The students' parent took the student to school Thursday and notified school administration.

"We are the United State so we need to step up and make a change", said Anna Roaldson, junior.

Again, thanks to the numerous students and families who contacted me last night.

"We're not trying to start a war and be a divisive force among students".
