I believe a student had emotional issues. The police were called, but the student mostly calmed down by the time officers arrived. The school probably didn't send out a notification since the incident wasn't criminal in nature.

My child saw at lunch time that a boy was having a tantrum and was crying loudly. An adult tried to calm him down. My child thought he might be handicapped because he was crying so loudly. I hope he is okay.

When my child was at Jordan, a classmate was arrested for selling pot to other students. There was no official notice sent out, and the student was back in class at Jordan the following week. Don't expect the school to be honest about anything like this, because they will claim that it's a privacy issue.
