SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — The mother of a Sioux Falls middle school student says it shouldn’t have taken school officials nine days to let her know about the depth of a threat against her son.
Amber Mauricio says it took that long before she learned a 13-year-old boy brought a knife to school and planned to use it to harm her son. Mauricio tells the Argus Leader she was initially told a student at Patrick Henry Middle School wanted to fight with her son, but too many days passed before she was told about the seriousness of the threat.
School district spokeswoman DeeAnn Konrad said Monday the district is unable to share information about specific discipline situations. Police say the boy could be charged with having a weapon on school property.
