Closer to home, the city's police department was called to the school Jan. 11 after a grade school student threatened to bring a gun aboard a school bus.
The threat was determined to be an off-the-cuff statement. Officials said no children were in harm's way, and no gun was brought to school.
The Grand Lake Family YMCA will host a 5k run/walk March 2. The “Steps for Safe Schools” run starts at the Grove School Administration building, circles the community and finishes at the administration building.
A fundraiser earlier this month at a local restaurant netted $500 from drinks and customers' tips, Coaly said. School administrators cooked, cleaned and accepted tips. Proceeds from the sale of beverages throughout the day were given to the school.
