A student suffered "serious but non-life threatening injuries" Tuesday after being stabbed by another student at College Heights Secondary School, Guelph police say.

Police report a male victim has been transported to a trauma centre for treatment. A male suspect has been arrested and was in custody Tuesday evening.

Around 3 p.m., officers were called to the school after reports of a "serious incident." 

As of 6 p.m. police were still at the school and said they could be there for "some time" as the investigation continued.

Regular classes Wednesday

Officials with the Upper Grand District School Board confirmed it involved two students but would not describe what happened.

School board officials did say a hold and secure was in place Tuesday afternoon. It has since been lifted, and a note to parents about the incident was being prepared. 

Classes will resume on a regular schedule on Wednesday morning and a crisis response team will be on hand, including counselors and social workers for students to speak to.
