8-year-old boy slashes students with knife at elementary school

8-year-old boy slashes students with knife at elementary school

Interim Superintendent Bruce Watkins said the "second-grade student entered the building, put his backpack away and pulled out a knife and struck three students".

Gales Creek - Christa Slaughter will take over as Oak Grove Academy's administrator on July 1, replacing Cassie Kenney, who is moving on to become Forest Grove School District's Student Services Coordinator.

"If I could answer that question I would", the police chief said.

The police chief in a Minnesota city where an 8-year-old slashed three other students with a knife says he wishes he knew why the boy did it.

Beise said the boy was released to his parents. He said he didn't know if the boy had been bullied, or if he had mental health issues. The police report will be forwarded to the Benton County Attorney's Office.

Beise said the children had "superficial wounds to be stitched up", and nobody else was seriously injured.

More than 400 students at a local elementary school received new shoes courtesy of a charitable organization called Samaritan's Feet and Walmart. The attacker will not be allowed back in school, the superintendent said.

Sauk Rapids borders St. Cloud on the northern edge.

According to the Oak Grove Academy's website, the school's mission statement reads "Oak Grove Academy believes that all students can experience growth and it is our mission to teach students skills for success across all settings to enable them to successfully participate in post-secondary education, meaningful employment, and integration into the community".

Watkins declined to comment further about the 8-year-old due to student privacy rules. In December 2012, Adam Lanza, 20, shot his mother to death at their Newtown, Connecticut, home before killing 20 first-graders and six educators at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
