BELMOND, Iowa – Nobody was hurt after a student pulled out a knife Monday at Belmond-Klemme High School.
“A teacher assistant was allegedly shown the knife, and the student allegedly made inappropriate comments and gestures toward her,” the school posted on social media. “No one was hurt in the incident.”
The school said the student was removed from the classroom.
"We recognize this was unacceptable behavior, and we needed to first ensure the safety of all our students and staff,” Principal Greg Fisher said.
The incident remains under investigation. The name of the student with the knife has not been released.
“We have deep and abiding concern for how an incident like this could affect our students. The welfare of our students comes first, and we will respond with their best interests at the forefront,” Fisher said.

"The student has been excluded from the school while the investigation is on-going."
