A Westside High School student is now in custody after taking knives to school, a school official said.

Bibb schools risk-management director David Gowan says the knives were discovered this morning. He would not describe the knives or say how many or give any further details on the case.

He said the student is now in custody of campus police.

The case is the latest of several in Bibb County schools this week, including one student assaulting another with a boxcutter at the Hutchings Career Center and a 14-year-old who hid a small handgun in his shoe at the Weaver Middle School.

The Bibb County school board has scheduled a called meeting for Monday, and its agenda simply says the board will discuss "discipline issues."

School spokesman Donald Porter said he had no further information on the meeting.

He also said school Supt. Romain Dallemand was not available for comment today. But he said he didn't know where Dallemand is Friday or whether he's in town.
