Safety Message 5/5/2022

On May 5, 2022, the New Castle Area School District (NCASD) and the New Castle City Police Department (NCPD) received information that a Taser-type weapon was in possession of a student at the New Castle Sr. High School. 


An investigation by the school officials and the NCPD resulted in the discovery of a plastic Taser.  


This weapon was confiscated and there is an active investigation being conducted to determine the circumstances of how the weapon was brought into the school. 


The NCPD and the NCASD have a zero tolerance policy for weapons on school property.  These matters are taken very seriously and anyone violating this policy will be held accountable by both the school and law-enforcement.  


We will provide more information when it becomes available through the investigation.
