Published: Monday, February 11, 2013 at 01:54 PM.

All outside activities were halted, though students were not evacuated. After examining the device, regular school acitivities resumed and the bomb squad took possession of the young boy's grenade.

Dianne Hicks, Bay Elementary principal, said this is the first time since she’s been principal that an incident like the grenade has occurred.

Anderson said the incident will not bring about any policy changes.

"We had a student who went against his parents’ wishes. It’s a one-time thing," Anderson said.

"You don’t want to take a bucket of water to blow out a match. We’re not going to overreact."
