According to the report, officers were called to Stambaugh Academy Wednesday for an incident involving a sixth-grade student.
Police say the fifth and sixth grade Dean told police that a child made threats to shoot up the school.
Reports say the student was escorted out of the classroom due to her erratic and aggressive behavior.
