GUTTENBERG – Based on a tip, school administrators at the Anna L. Klein school in Guttenberg searched student lockers and discovered pellet guns belonging to eight boys.

The police were present while school security conducted the search. “The police and administration acted swiftly to ensure the safety of the school,” said Superintendent of the Guttenberg School District Michele Rosenberg. “At no time were the kids in danger.”

All the weapons were found by school security personnel.

The school sent out a reverse 911 call notifying all parents immediately after the incident according to Police Captain Joel Magenheimer, who said the eight boys were charged with possession of a weapon.

“Anything that looks like a weapon is considered a weapon so we treat it as such,” said Superintendent Rosenberg, who added that the school has a “zero tolerance” policy toward incidents of this sort.

The boys range in age from 10 to 13 years old. The matter will be handled in Hudson County Family Court. -- Art Schwartz

The parents were not notified. It make you believe how un organize the office is. The principal always has a huge attitude and targets students and treats them unfairly. Good teachers but the principal (woman) needs to go. Can't wait for my children to be out of there
