LAS VEGAS (KLAS)—
On Friday, in a note to parents, the Desert Oasis high school said there was no threat made to students or staff. Last week the high school was put on lockdown two days in a row for separate incidents.
The first, happened last Wednesday when a gun was reported on campus.
A student was taken into custody but released after police talked to her mother and no weapon was found.
On Thursday the high school was put on lockdown again after a fight broke out in the common area.
One adult and one juvenile were both arrested.8 other students were cited.
8 News Now spoke to one parent who is considering taking his son out of this school because he says the violence is affecting his education
Even if it’s just a scare sometimes, it’s just a bunch of fights, says Troy Freeman, a concerned parent. “I think that’s what happened on Thursday, but to have those happen back to back, it hurts their educational process. Now having a kid with a gun is getting worrisome.”
The high school has had two meetings so far with parents to discuss safety protocols, and a concerned parent has planned a meeting on Monday at the Windmill library at 6 p.m.
This is to address concerns about school safety. The hope is that the school board can step in.
