Keniya Lloyd and Donesia Glass, both of Decatur, "are not currently attending classes" after the Sept. 14 attack, DeKalb County schools spokesman Andre Riley told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution in an email.

According to arrest warrants, Lloyd fought a school bus driver before stabbing her with a steak knife in the arm and hand. Glass' only role in the assault was handing Lloyd back the knife after she threw it, records show.

The injured driver was seated behind the primary bus driver and served as a monitor at the time of the attack, Riley said.

“The incident that involves students from McNair High School, as well as staff from our transportation department, is appalling on all accounts,” district officials said in a statement. “Under no circumstances is an assault on our staff or students acceptable.”

DeKalb schools officials have not said what led to the attack, but emphasized employees involved in the attack would be “investigated thoroughly.”

The AJC has requested a copy of the incident report from the school district.

Glass and Lloyd both face charges of aggravated assault and carrying a weapon on school property. They are out of jail on bond.
