One student suffered minor injuries during a fight with another student Friday morning at Stockbridge High School.

Two boys, a 16-year-old and a 17-year-old, began arguing in the schools cafeteria as classes were starting for the day.

Stockbridge Superintendent Bruce Brown tells WILX.com the school's principal was doing his regular rounds and was nearby when the fight began. He quickly broke it up, but not before the 17-year-old student was cut.

He was taken to a hospital, treated and released. Both students have been told to remain home while the incident is investigated by the Ingham County Sheriff's Office.

Because of the incident, the school went into automatic lockdown for about an hour and a half. Parents were notified through an automatic phone system.

    I have a student at Stockbridge High. I was not contacted through the automatic phone system. Or any other system. I have also found it imposable to contact anyone at the school through that system. Thanks for nothing Stockbridge administrators.

    It was so scarry. everyone was just minding their own buissness, when suddenly... the secretarys voice came over the Intercom "This is a Code red, everyone get to a classroom imediatly" . Everyone was running and screaming boody murder. we were all panicing . teachers were yelling get to a room hurry !!!! i was crying and so was my friend Becca. we saw it all happen. it was gross how much blood came from that 17 year old boy. theother boy was dramaticly thrashing the knife. it could have cut anybody. then people started screaming KNIFE!!!!! and i started throwing up. the boy that got stabbed fell to the ground. it was the worst thing to ever happen to me i am now going to therapy, because of this expierince . thanks to stockbridge highs mistake of not installing metal detectors. Sincerly, C.J.

    as I see it the school did the best they could.we want schools to do more and more.funding is not always there. and less might be given without taxes.parents need to teach there kids rights and wrongs at home. kids are in juvie courts all over america for so many things.more and more crimes are being done by young adults under 18.what is this being caused by?if either one would of been my kids they would be so grounded.with added chores or something.kids get away with to much.parents have no clue to so much there kids are doing.wake up america.get these kids under control,so there not so much money needed for the schools to raise our kids for us.

    The main reason that there was a lockdown is because 2 students thought to be involved in the incident could not be located. Once they were found and questioned, it was determined that they were bystanders and not a threat. The student involved and the weapon were in custody, so the lockdown was lifted. In the event of a weapon being inside the school you still need to lock down. That is how you keep control. The district has a policy, and it seems to be a good one.

    I thought the automatic system worked great,and timely too!!! I got the auto-call from all the schools my kids are involved in. I feel that they had the situation under control considering the circumstances. Check your messages Christine---the system works fine. I do feel,however that the children need to be made more aware to what a "code red" was. Yes, staff knows,but most kids were unaware. Lesson for the future,I guess. Let's just keep our kids safe and work together, so this sort of incident doesn't happen again.

    I don't think the lock down was very effective because I know someone who got in to pick something up this morning by knocking on the locked door at the high school while the police were still there. A student walking down the hall walked up and opened the door and let him in. So if this was a danger why is the student walking down the hall and why was this person there to pick something up even allowed to get up to the door with out being confronted by either staff or the police? As far as I can tell the only parents notified by the automated message were those with students in the elementary schools. I got two, one from Heritage and one from Smith and so did my brother but no notice from the high school or middle school and we have a child in each school. All the message really said is everything is ok and everyone is safe, and we have gone into lock down. Ok so like something that vague isn't going to freak anyone out!

    We should have funraisers to raise money for metal detectors for all school doors so no weapond can enter our childrens schools. Kids who impose violence on another should be EXPELLED from school to ensure the safety of others although there needs to be an end to the bullying kids endure in school as well. We all bleed the same blood.

    Why do schools go on SHUT DOWN when there is a WEAPON in the SCHOOL?! This makes no sense and you hear about it every time! Its aggrevating especially when this violence is in our own town!

    The principal/Superintendent stated that parents were notifed by automatic phone message. Neither me or my daughters father was notified via a phone message.
