The department says it received a phone call yesterday from a concerned parent who reported the threat.

Officials say it involved a student bringing a weapon to school today.

The department notes the Hutchinson Middle School was on a brief lockdown yesterday for a scheduled K-9 narcotic sniff, but that was unrelated to the reported threat.
