Brook Point HS locked down this afternoon

Brook Point High School was in lock-down Friday for 23 minutes after two students reported seeing another student with a knife. School officials locked down the building and soon found the student, who did have a steak knife. Stafford County Public Schools Spokesman Valerie Cottongim said that everyone is safe and no one was harmed.

The school division doesn’t have a zero tolerance policy on weapons, but the Code of Conduct does call for at least a short-term suspension if a student is found with a weapon.
