The email "was a way to reassure everyone that all of our students are safe," Nielsen said. "Safety is our No. 1 priority, and we will do everything in our power to ensure that the students are taken care of."
The Beatrice Police Department posted on Facebook that it is investigating the incident, and the school district's Facebook page said "until the investigation is completed, the student has been removed from the school to ensure safety."
Police said there is no current danger to students and staff.
