A teenager has been disciplined for bringing an air pistol to a St. John's school on Monday.

The provincial school board said police were called to Beaconsfield Junior High School in the west end after the student showed up with a spring-loaded, air soft pistol.

A spokesperson with the board said it wasn't fired, and the student's parents were notified.

The school also got in touch with all parents to remind them of policies around bringing any type of weapon to school.
