Prineville School Staff Hurt in Altercation with Student

Prineville Police Department were called to Barnes Butte Elementary School Wednesday to help staff calm a student struggling with emotional issues. Crook County School District Communication Director, Jason Carr (who declined to comment on tape), said the situation escalated to point where school officials felt the need to request outside help. Three staff members suffered minor injuries while trying to calm the child who was transported to the hospital for professional help. Carr said the incident took place outside the regular classroom setting. No other students were involved or injured. Barnes Butte Elementary has two resource officers with the Prineville Police Department, a factor Carr said helped resolve the situation that much faster.
