LOCUST GROVE — Luella Middle School was placed on lockdown Tuesday morning after a student was reported to have a weapon on campus.

School administrators and the School Resource Officer investigated when another student reported the weapon to officials.

JD Hardin, Henry County Schools spokesman, said a weapon was found on the student who now faces “disciplinary action and legal repercussions for their actions.”

Hardin added that at no time were other students or staff members harmed or threatened. He could not confirm whether the weapon was loaded.

The lockdown was lifted following the conclusion of the investigation.

The unidentified student faces a minimum one-year expulsion. The maximum punishment could result in permanent expulsion from Henry County Schools according to the district’s 2019-2020 Code of Conduct.
