IDAHO FALLS — Reports of an armed student at Compass Academy on Tuesday turned out to be not credible, according to district officials.
Idaho Falls School District 91 received a report of a possible weapon on campus Tuesday, D91 spokeswoman Margaret Wimborne told EastIdahoNews.com. The district investigated the report with its school resource officers and the Idaho Falls Police Department.
“Idaho Falls School District 91 takes any potential threats to the safety and security of our students and staff very seriously, and always investigates them to the fullest,” Wimborne said.

“When it comes to the safety of our students and our community, we would rather have a large response and make sure everyone is safe,” Clements told EastIdahoNews.com.
