School Beating Sends Girl To Hospital

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Authorities are investigating a fight at a Las Vegas middle school that sent a girl to the hospital.

Clark County School District officials say the fight Wednesday involved students at Mike O’Callaghan Middle School, located in the northeast part of the Las Vegas valley.

District spokeswoman Penny Ramos-Bennett says the girl was taken to University Medical Center, but couldn’t release information on her medical condition due to privacy laws. The circumstances of the fight are under investigation.

The district issued a statement describing the incident as a “terrible situation” and saying chief student achievement officer Mike Barton would be reemphasizing the importance of student safety with all school employees.
