Good Afternoon –

This afternoon, Tuesday, October 3, 2017, the School Resource Officer at Sycamore High School was made aware of a possible weapon in a student locker. The locker was immediately searched under the supervision of school personnel. A starter pistol, used at track and field events was found. A starter pistol resembles a firearm but has a barrel that prevents the possibility of projectile firing.  Prior to the recovery of the starter pistol, there was no information that any specific or general threats were made.

The incident remains under investigation by the Sycamore Police Department and the Sycamore School District.

Student safety remains our top priority and we thank Sycamore Police Department for their assistance with this matter.
