Pocket Knife on a Topeka School Bus may have actually been Fingernail Clippers

School administrators had planned to meet Tuesday to decide what action to take after a student allegedly brought a pocket knife on the bus Monday.

But Topeka U.S.D. 501 spokesperson Ron Harbaugh told 13 News Tuesday morning the pocket knife turned out to be fingernail clippers.

The district received a report that a third grader from Williams Magnet School brought a pocket knife to school, then pulled it out and waved it at another student on the bus.

Harbaugh says the driver did not see what happened.

The other child's parents contacted school officials about the incident.

The parents of the child will be meeting with the principal at Williams Magnet according to Harbaugh.
