Classes resumed Wednesday morning at Bradford High School in Kenosha, after students were sent home at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday following a stabbing incident.
According to Kenosha Police, one juvenile student stabbed another juvenile student in the chest inside the building.
Police said the victim was flown to an area trauma center, where he's being treated for life threatening injuries.
"He was one of my (football) teammates, which stinks," said Bradford High School student Sayge Terrell.
"He was a great friend," Terrell said of the victim. "I talked to him the other day. I had one class with him, and we'd always be joking around with each other in that class."
The stabbing suspect was immediately taken into custody by a school resource officer.
According to police, the weapon used in the stabbing was recovered.
Still, Bradford H.S. parents were worried about the safety of their kids.
In the aftermath of the stabbing, student Delavyn Christman said his parents reached out immediately.
"I was getting multiple messages from them," Christman said. "They just wanted to make sure I was OK."
Christman added he doesn't think any Bradford students were scared of returning to the building Wednesday.
"I feel pretty comfortable," he said.
District officials said additional counselors will be on hand at Bradford H.S. today.
They, along with police, also stressed the stabbing was an isolated incident and there is no threat to any other students, staff members, or the public.
"Our thoughts are with the hospitalized student and the family," the district said in a statement.
Terrell said he thinks his friend will be OK.
"I think he'll be fine. He's a tough kid. He'll make a good recovery," Terrell said.
