Deputies Respond to Renaissance Charter School – Unfounded Threat


The investigation revealed that a student saw another student with what appeared to be a handgun.  The student immediately notified a teacher/administration.

Deputies arrived on scene and found NO immediate threat to the school.  Proper protocol was followed.  The students, teachers and administrators were transported to a reunification area so deputies could do a thorough search of the school, backpacks, etc. No weapons were located.  Deputies have cleared the school.

PBSO is proud of the student for coming forward with what he/she perceived as a threat to themselves and the school.  SEE SOMETHING SAY SOMETHING message is always encouraged.
