Second-graders at Bryant Elementary School in Arlington were chased down by neighborhood dogs who came to play on Friday afternoon, according to school officials.
Five of the children suffered skinned knees, elbows and a possible bite when they fled once the dogs became too aggressive. The children were treated onsite at the school for their injuries. A note was sent home to parents.
The dogs, who were already known by Arlington Animal Control officers who have picked them up before, are being held in 10-day quarantine, said district spokesperson Amy Casas.
Campus officials at Bryant are in the process of filing a Dangerous Dog affidavit.
