A resource officer at McGuffey School responded to a report that a student was found to have a weapon.
A student at Warren's McGuffey K-8 will face discipline after allegedly bringing a knife to school.
According to the report, the incident happened around 10:20 am on Tuesday and was brought to the attention of a school resource officer.
Warren School's spokesperson Virginia Shank told 21 News the student had a Swiss Army knife.
The student is a female, but Shank could not provide her age or grade.
McGuffey school was not placed on lockdown during the incident.
According to the school system's Guide to Positive Behavior, the Board of Education prohibits staff members, students, and visitors from possessing, storing, making or using a weapon, including a concealed weapon in a school safety zone.
A school safety zone is defined by Ohio law as a school, school building, school premises, school activity, and any school bus.
The Superintendent/designee shall refer any violator to law enforcement officials, regardless of whether he or she possesses a valid concealed weapons license.
School officials have not said what disciplinary action will be taken against the student.
