GREENSBORO, N.C. — Guilford County Schools said police are in an active investigation involving an alleged incident at Kiser Middle School.

Nora Carr, chief of staff at GCS, said in a statement police were called to the school on Benjamin Parkway Tuesday afternoon to assist with “a situation allegedly involving four members of a Kiser Middle School family.”

Police called paramedics to tend to an adult family member with a medical emergency, Carr said. The school was placed on lockdown as a precaution, Carr said.

Police are also investigating what Carr called “a serious allegation involving two students.”

The statement did not include the type of allegation, as Carr said student matters are protected by state and federal privacy laws.

The statement did say, however, that no weapons were involved, and it included the line below:

Disruptions to our schools and any threats or assaults on school personnel will not be tolerated at Kiser or at any GCS school or facility, and may result in criminal charges.

The school’s principal sent a message to all parents of Kiser students Tuesday night, Carr said.

The school’s safety director will be at the school in the morning, and parents with questions or concerns can contact the school on Wednesday, Carr said.
