Marshall — Backpacks have been banned from Marshall Junior High School after students were caught with pocket knives on campus Friday.
According to Interim Superintendent Brian Nichols, the skirmishes began Thursday morning with a fight on the junior high school campus, and on Friday students were caught carrying knives on campus.
“The knives were not used to fight, and they were not displayed,” Nichols said. “Administrators were told by students that certain students had knives, and administrators proactively went out and confiscated the weapons.”
