Seven Elementary school students at William Paca Elementary School took the blades out of their pencil sharpeners and slit their wrist.  This occured before spring break and a crisis counseling team met with the students and their parents.  They were seen by the school nurse but the cuts were not severe enough to call 911.  Related sources say that this incident may have been because of bullying.
