Police investigating student injury at Snake River High

BLACKFOOT — Bingham County detectives are investigating an incident that left a Snake River High School student injured.

KIFI Local News 8 reported Tuesday that a teacher at the school may be linked to the incident, though Bingham County Sheriff Craig Rowland wouldn’t provide details about a case still under review.

Snake River School District superintendent David Kerns also declined to comment on specifics, but said the school district was following board policy, including steps for placing certified employees on voluntary or involuntary leave.

Neither Kerns nor Rowland would discuss the severity of the injury, or whether any action has been taken against students possibly involved.

The district will be holding an anti-bullying assembly for all students Thursday, Kerns said, and teachers will receive additional training on bullying Friday.
