New Rochelle schools released a statement Friday, saying, "We cannot comment on the cases of individual students or former students, yet I want to note that we have implemented several new safety measures at New Rochelle High School since early this calendar year ... The school is being strictly operated as a closed campus. The safety of our students and staff is our top priority."

As News 12 reported, the stabbing was one of three attacks in a matter of days involving New Rochelle High School students.
