Two Students Caught With Knives at Coahoma Junior High

COAHOMA, TX (KWES) - Scary moments at Coahoma Junior High Tuesday morning. School officials say two students brought what they're calling "throwing knives" onto campus.

The superintendent tells NewsWest9, the weapons were not brought to school to harm anyone.

The knives were discovered inside the students backpacks. No injuries were reported.

Local law enforcement helped retrieve the weapons and it's unclear how many knifes were brought onto campus.

Coahoma ISD has not said how they found out the students had the weapons.

Superintendent of the Coahoma School District says the safety of students is their top priority.

They are encouraging parents with safety concerns to reach out to administration.

It's unclear if the students are facing any punishment but Coahoma ISD policy does state that bringing knives onto school grounds is a serious disciplinary offense.
