The boy allegedly cut three children with the knife in less than a minute.

Beise says that when officers arrived, the boy was in a counselor's office while the three children, who were not seriously hurt, were being treated by the school nurse. The police report will be forwarded to the Benton County Attorney's Office. The students were ages eight, nine, and 13. The weapon was a kitchen knife the boy brought to school. A Pleasantview primary-aged student entered the building and upon putting away his backpack, he pulled out a knife and began striking students with it.

Close to 100 parents and students who have walked the halls of The Foundation School for Autism gathered for the school's first ever homecoming celebration. Police, ambulance and parents were called and responded. The chief says he doesn't know if the boy had been bullied or had mental health issues.

Watkins said the school made mental health counsellors available to students and staff. Classes went on as scheduled.
