Let's pray for their speedy recovery and that they develop more effective communication skills.

Posted on PUSD website: PIncident September 15, 2011, 3:20 p.m.
After school today, at approximately 2:30 p.m., an incident occurred on First Street involving four Pleasanton Unified high school students. Police and other emergency personnel responded to a reported altercation and injuries. One Village student and one Amador Valley student were transported to local hospitals. At this time, the incident is under investigation by the Pleasanton Police Department. Additional information may be released by the PPD as appropriate

Pleasanton Unified staff and counselors are available to any students or parents who have concerns related to this incident. As always, the safety of our students continues to be a priority

Some people want to live with the head in the sand and pretend Pleasanton is Pleasantville. Really folks, they were ALL Pleasanton students. From Amador and Village H.S.
There are crimes here and it will only get worse. This town is emerging as urban urban sprawl and with the building of all that cheap housing on Bernal, and a strip mall....welcome to Dublin folks....Yuk. This used to be quiet and quaint. Not anymore.

They had it coming to them, those 2 kids were not little angels. I am a student at village and there is way more things that led to this. they got stabbed because they tried to jump him. and alot of the so called "witnesses" gave false statements. Pleasanton is full of fake materialistic people.

As an individual within the environment, do you think there is anything that can be done to prevent such things from happening?

Student is 100% correct and more than that it was racially motivated which no one in the Pleasanton Weekly will talk about. The two stabbing victims were both black and the stabber was white. They had been messing with him for weeks and jumped him and got stabbed in the process. You wait and see and he will get released with no charges. The two who were stabbed started the whole thing.

people should not judge till they know the real story.Sometimes people get bullied to a point were we defend ourselves out of fear .
sometimes we dont say a thing out of fear of being a snitch,and sometimes violence might get prevented if underpriveliged students would get more help from teachers instead of always helping the priveliged.

Stabbing others is never a good solution to a problem.

There are other ways to communicate without a knife or a fist.

It takes time, work, and education. Lets all work on it.

Student is right: the stabber was actually mexican. Just pointing that out.
