A fifth grade student at E.B. Morse was reported as having a knife in her backpack yesterday. Principal Anna Brink investigated the allegation and the student reportedly admitted to being in possession of a kitchen knife, indicating it was because of problems with a neighbor at home. The knife was confiscated and the student will be disciplined according to school and district policy. Principal Brink did a ‘call alert’ to the parents of all E.B. Morse Elementary School students advising them of the incident.
