School-BusOsage school and police officials are defending their response to a student making threats after questions were raised recently about the incident. A father expressed his concerns to Osage school officials after he says he wasn’t immediately informed when his daughter was included on a 10-student “hit list” in February.

The school district says the student who made the list was disciplined and will continue to be monitored, but officials are not releasing the details of the punishment.

Osage’s police chief Brian Wright says officers looked into the incident, and prosecutors decided no charges would be filed. Wright says he was happy with how the school district handled the situation.
