At North Scott Junior High on August 31, 2018, a heroic teacher was calm and collected when a seventh grader displayed a handgun during class. The situation was handled quickly, and the teacher was able to calmly counter and disarm the student. The rest of the Junior High locked down until the site was secured. The gunman was taken into custody. The staff practices ALICE training to prepare for these situations. Thankfully, it paid off and no one was harmed in this incident.
