East Valley Middle School

NAMPA — An East Valley Middle School student was pulled out of class Thursday when a staff member received a tip that the student was carrying a weapon on school grounds, Nampa school district spokeswoman Kathleen Tuck said.

When the staff member asked the student about it, Tuck said the student cooperated and told the employee they had a BB gun in their backpack, which the employee then located. Tuck said no students were harmed during the incident, and there was no indication that the student had any plan involving the BB gun.
