Cypress Bay High School in Weston was placed on “secure status” Thursday morning after a “dangerous item” was found on campus

WESTON, Florida – The Broward Sheriff’s Office confirmed that a “dangerous item” was found on the campus of Cypress Bay High School in Weston on Thursday morning.

Just before noon, the city of Weston said on Twitter that everything was back to normal.

BSO says that the incident was looked into by school deputies and that all students and teachers are safe.

BSO said that the investigation is still going on.

No other information was given right away.

The event on Thursday happened just two days after a “suspicious item” was found on campus and the school was put on lockdown for several hours.

Authorities haven’t said much more about what was found on Tuesday and Thursday or if anyone has been caught, but one parent told Local 10 News that the principal told parents in an email that the item found on Tuesday was a shotgun shell that was found in a trash can.

Thursday, sources told Hatzel Vela of Local 10 News that another shotgun shell was found.

Parents told Vela Thursday outside the school that they were upset with how little information they were getting.

Diana Castrillon said, “I think communication is important in any relationship of trust, and this is probably the most important relationship of trust when you leave your child at an institution to be cared for, taught, and educated. And, you know, I think as a parent, if we can’t even get basic information, it creates a lot more confusion and chaos.”

Anna Fusco, the president of the Broward Teachers Union, wants more security to make sure that this doesn’t happen again.

She said, “We have a lot of security people who could be sent over there and help with that mission while the book bags stay at home for a while.”
