Dear CCSD staff,

The safety of all students and staff at Clark County School District (CCSD) is our top priority. I am devastated and the CCSD family is in pain for the teacher who was assaulted at Eldorado High School. Our hearts are heavy for the violence against her and we pray for her full recovery. As I have previously stated, “acts of violence, assault, and bullying will not be tolerated in the Clark County School District and those who choose to engage in these activities will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.” While this incident is now in the hands of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, you can rest assured that this suspect will be held accountable for his actions. Once again, let me be clear that violence will not be tolerated in Clark County schools, or against our students or staff.

Fox 5 reported that concerns about violence against teachers are growing in the district.

According to KTNV, Eldorado High School Principal Christina Brockett also released a statement. This is the school where the attack took place. It is reading,

The past 24 hours have been a difficult time for our school community. I would like to take a moment to thank our employees who helped respond to the terrible situation and helped a colleague in need. We do everything we can to support our students, staff and community.

I want the Eldorado family to know that this is an isolated case. The suspect was arrested thanks to the quick work of the CCSD police.

Eldorado is a great school with students and staff who are here to support one another. While it will take time, we will work through this and bring forth a stronger Sundevil family.
