EMS responded for an injury just before 2 p.m. and treated an 11-year-old boy for a stab wound to “the upper body,” according to the agency.
The boy was taken to the hospital in serious condition.
In a letter to parents, Principal Kenneth Agcaoili reported that the incident started as an argument between two students.
The 11-year-old was then apparently stabbed by a pair of scissors that was being used for an art activity.
Agcaoili said the school is set to operate with no change in the schedule Tuesday. Counselors will be available to assist anyone who is feeling challenged by the incident.
HPD has opened a second-degree attempted murder investigation.
