At approximately 3:30 PM today, almost an hour and a half after student dismissal, a Riverhead High School student returned to the high school requesting medical assistance for an apparent stabbing injury to his arm experienced in an altercation that occurred off of school grounds. Medical assistance was provided and an ambulance was called to transport the student to a local hospital for further evaluation and treatment. Law enforcement was engaged, and an investigation was opened. The district is cooperating with law enforcement in its ongoing investigation of this matter. In an abundance of caution, additional police presence will be on site at our high school this evening for the scheduled basketball game as well as tomorrow morning.
When additional information is available that can be shared with the community, an update will be provided.
