LAS VEGAS — Following a fireworks-related incident at the school on Monday morning, a Centennial High School student was taken into custody.
Parents at Centennial High School received a mail from principal Keith Wipperman on April 24 informing them that there had been a “disturbance in the cafeteria involving fireworks.”
According to the statement, no significant injuries were recorded.
Parents received an update that a student had been arrested in a second communication delivered later in the day. While CCSD cannot comment on specific student problems, the statement also states that “appropriate disciplinary action will be taken.”
The two communications issued to parents are reproduced in full below:
This is Centennial High School Principal Keith Wipperman.
As always, we want to keep you informed of important issues happening within our school community. This morning, there was a disturbance in the cafeteria involving firecrackers. There were no serious injuries reported.
We are working to identify those responsible. As it has been communicated multiple times, the Clark County School District is actively pursuing any and all legal actions against students who violates the CCSD Student Code of Conduct.
