A stabbing at Carver Middle School in Meridian sent a child to the hospital Wednesday with serious injuries.
The stabbing that involved two students happened around 1:40 p.m. as students were changing classes.
One of those students was taken to a local hospital for treatment. The other was arrested by Meridian police.
Interim superintendent, Dr. Randy McCoy, said a teacher disarmed the student who had the knife.
"We have a procedure where you might call it a 'red button' is pressed and that springs into action, that a teacher needs appropriate help," said McCoy.
School officials say neither of the students had prior disciplinary issues.
