A student who brought ammunition to a Norridge elementary school has been disciplined, District 80 officials announced Thursday.
Norridge School District 80 officials took the action after the incident at John V. Leigh School, 8151 W. Lawrence Ave., Superintendent Kerry Leiby told parents in a letter.
A student brought six rounds of live ammunition to school, according to the letter, which provided no details on the size of the ammunition or the student’s grade, age or gender.
“The student had no weapon and was not threatening any violence,” the letter stated, adding that the student had passed the rounds of ammunition to other classmates.
Leiby, in the letter, said the district recovered all the ammuntion, notified the student’s parents and disciplined the student according to district policy.
The district turned the ammunition over to the Norridge Park Police Department.
Privacy laws protecting students prevented him from going into more detail, Leiby said in the letter. ~.
