The school had been placed on two consecutive lockdowns in March, the first placed following reports of a weapon being brought to campus, and the second placed after reported fights on campus between several juveniles and an adult.
Weeks after the lockdowns, Desert Oasis parents hosted a meeting to discuss school safety and issues with violence on campus.
