On May 26, 2022, a Big Sky High School student was arrested on charges of Conspiracy to Commit Assault With A Weapon and Unlawful Possession of Weapon On School Property. Missoula Police Department Public Information Officer Lydia Arnold explains.

“The School Resource Officer was alerted to a verbal argument between two male students,” Arnold said. “A third-party report to the officer indicated an 18-year-old student intended to get revenge against the other involved male.
