DENVER (KDVR) — A student was taken into custody Thursday after allegedly stabbing another student at a Denver school.
According to the Denver Police Department, the stabbing happened at Marie L. Greenwood Early-8 in Montbello, which includes grades pre-K through eighth. No information has been released about the ages of the students involved except that they are juveniles.
The school’s principal sent a letter to the school community, sharing more details about what happened.
“Earlier today, members of my medical team called for an ambulance to come to our
school to assist one of our students,” Principal Blake Hammond said. “DPS Department of Climate and Safety and Denver Police are investigating allegations that one of our students used a sharp object to injure another student.”
Hammond said the student received immediate medical attention and was taken to the hospital.
“The injured student’s family has informed us that the student is stable,” Hammond said.
Parent-teacher conferences set for Thursday night were to be rescheduled.
“I want to make it clear that any student who intentionally harms another student faces disciplinary action in accordance with our school district’s policies and procedures,” Hammond said.
School was to resume as normal on Friday with mental health providers on site.
