RCMP says they got a call Tuesday morning about a student with a knife at Spruce Grove elementary school.
They responded immediately and say the boy gave up the knife.
Police say no other students were in the area at the time.
No one was injured and no lockdown was put in place at the school because police say it happened so quickly.
The boy, who can't be named due to provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act, is charged with possession of a weapon dangerous to the public, and mischief.
