LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A student has been arrested at Grant Sawyer Middle school following reports of an alleged assault on a teacher.
School administrators notified parents on Wednesday afternoon saying in part that the teacher was not physically harmed and that CCSD Police responded and handled the situation within minutes.
This is the second incident of the day that has happened at a CCSD school.
Earlier on Wednesday, a student was arrested for allegedly assaulting a Foothill High School teacher. According to sources, that student was armed with a knife, however, the teacher was not physically harmed.
The two incidents that occurred on Wednesday follow an alleged attack on an Eldorado High School teacher on April 7.
On Monday, CCSD Superintendent Jesus Jara emailed parents and students addressing school safety concerns as students returned to classes on Tuesday following spring break.
On Wednesday, a school safety rally was held at Eldorado High School by the Education Support Employees Association in hopes of shedding light on the increase in violence within schools.
Since the beginning of the 2021-2022 school year, CCSD has had more than 5,000 incidents of violence reported on school campuses.
