Clinton Township — A student is in police custody in connection with a report of a gun on school grounds at Chippewa Valley High School on Friday.

In a letter to parents, superintendent Ron Roberts said school administrators received a tip from a parent and a student that another student had a gun on the high school campus.

"Administrators immediately called police and placed the school in a hold as a precautionary measure," Roberts said. "Police responded to the call immediately and removed the student without incident. The student is now in police custody."

Roberts said he applauds the action of students and parents in reporting the incident and thanked the district's police resource officers and the Clinton Township police for their quick response.

"Keeping our students and staff safe is a community-wide effort," Roberts said. "Parents, please remember to talk to your child about your expectations for behavior at home and at school. Remind them of the school policies that prohibit weapons on school premises and the serious consequences they will face if they violate those rules."

Township police said no students or staff were harmed.
