Message to parents regarding Oct. 29 event

The following message was sent to parents on Oct. 29

This is Principal Renee Brandner. I’m calling parents of students at Nicollet Junior High to tell you about what took place at school today. During the day, a student reported to a staff member that another student may have brought a weapon to school. After considering the information, we initiated our “shelter in place” protocol throughout the school and Police officers searched school lockers using dogs.

No weapon was found and we returned to normal operations.
