A Martin County High School student will face administrative discipline after he got on to his school bus wearing a full Scream costume this morning. Students on the bus were alarmed by the incident.
The Martin County Sheriff’s SRO was notified and the student was removed from the bus. Deputies searched the student’s bag and located the fake knife.
The student said he thought his actions would be perceived as funny.

In light of the devastating school massacre in Texas, we are urging all parents to speak to their children about the emotional fragility and concerns of others. Actions that might have seemed harmless and funny in the past, can cause fear and panic now. In addition, law enforcement has a duty to protect all children from unknown threats that cause panic and fear, and will do so accordingly.
