According to authorities, when classes started on Monday, a kid at a school in Columbia had an injury and was brought to a nearby hospital.
Ishmael Tate, the spokesman for Richland District 2, said the male student was harmed at Richland Northeast Hs.
Near Decker Boulevard in Columbia, Richland Northeast High School is located on Brookfield Road.
No details are available on the student’s injuries. There is no news on his health.
According to Tate, no students were associated with the incident, and no illegal activity is being investigated.
According to Tate, the event occurred in one of the school’s classrooms at 8 a.m.
Tate claimed that even though it was before classes began, it was typical for students to be present in the halls and buildings.
What Tate Stated In A Press Statement?
Tate stated in a press statement that other students saw the incident, and several professors came to their rescue.
According to the press release from Tate, “the kid is currently getting care at the hospital because of the instant response.”
The release said that district employees, school social services, and school counselors are on-site at the school to help the kids and staff.
Thus according to Tate, Richland Northeast wasn’t placed under a lockdown or any other safety precaution, and there are no preparations for an imminent release.
In a statement to parents that it later made public, Richland 2 responded to the issue.
The letter said that “our initial efforts this morning were to assure the well-being of our student as well as their family. We needed to ensure that the information we provided to kids, staff, and society was correct and proper out of regard for them.”
Regrettably, rumors started circulating widely on social media before we could reveal the truth about this tragic tragedy.
We ask parents and students to show consideration and refrain from spreading rumors that could inadvertently injure or frighten kids or staff.
Such incidents deeply distress the whole school and surrounding community.
