Official reports from the Enlarged City School District of Middletown indicate that the situation, which injured two students, was isolated to one area of the building. The two students that were injured have been transported to receive medical attention and the students involved in the situation are said to be in custody.
We have just completed a full physical grid check of the entire Monhagen Middle School campus. The situation was isolated to one area of the building.
