As students sat in class, someone in a mask reportedly rushed into the room and pretended to rob them with a fake pistol. The students were not aware of the exercise ahead of time.


Ken Derksen, public information officer with the Wayne County Public Schools, told WTVD-TV that activity “did lack that sensitivity that was needed.”

However, “the exercise in its original intent was appropriate, but in how it was executed it obviously lacked judgment,” he added.
