Gun at Whiteland school leads to arrest

WHITELAND, Ind. (WISH) — A letter went out to Clark-Pleasant Community School Corp. parents on Friday after district officials said a student brought a gun to school.

Police arrested a student after school officials determined there was a gun at Whiteland Community High School during the school day Thursday, according to a letter from Superintendent Patrick Spray. Details of the arrest weren’t immediately known.

School officials weren’t notified of the gun until after school Thursday. Spray said in his letter that the principal called police Thursday and the investigation into the incident continued Friday morning.

Spray urged parents to speak with their children about the importance of quickly notifying school officials of safety issues. He was concerned about the delay in the report of the gun on campus.

“We are sincerely concerned by this incident and felt it critical that we inform you so that you can have a very serious conversation with your child/children,” Spray’s letter said.
