From James Evans, Rutherford County Schools
Rocky Fork Middle parents,
There was an altercation between two eighth-grade students this morning at Rocky Fork Middle School and one student was cut with a kitchen-style knife.
The school was on a Code Yellow lockdown while the situation was being resolved, but it is over by noon. The situation only involved two students and all others are safe and have been moved to their homeroom.
Police continue to be on scene and are investigating the situation, and so you will notice additional police officers on campus. We also have additional school counselors headed to the school to assist with any students who need to talk about what they saw.
