Good afternoon, Carver Nation, this is Dr. Maxwell, your principal. Earlier today our school was placed on HOLD after we learned two students got into an altercation inside one of our restrooms. One student produced a pair of scissors and injured the other. The student with the scissors was immediately located and will face consequences. The injured student was transported to the hospital, and we understand the injuries are not life threatening. The student is alert and responsive. No other students were involved in the altercation. Please know the HOLD was out of extreme caution so we could investigate and clear the scene appropriately. Student safety is our top priority, and these actions will not be tolerated. We appreciate students and parents making us aware anytime there is something that concerns them.
