Fifth Grade Marysville Student Cannot Return To School Until Further Notice

In a letter to school district parents posted to social media on Wednesday by the Marysville Public School Superintendent Shawn Wightman, the Marysville Police Department is investigating an incident in which a student allegedly made a comment concerning shooting up Washington Elementary School.  The comment was allegedly made by a fifth grade student during a choir concert Tuesday night and was brought to building-level administrative staff and the student was removed from school Wednesday by the parents, according to the letter. The student is not to return to school or be in the vicinity of school campuses until further notice.    Wightman stated in the letter  that they are thankful a student stepped up to report in the incident as the student’s safety is something everyone must work together to protect.
