Posts sharing the video stated the incident happened at Las Vegas High School.
The principal of Las Vegas High School sent out an email on Wednesday saying students might have seen an “altercation” in one of their classes, though a video is not mentioned.
“Administration is aware and responding to this matter and it is being addressed through the appropriate channels,” the email states.
Lt. Bryan Zink with CCSD Police confirmed the student who was filmed hitting the other student has been cited for battery, and more charges could be pending. The condition of the other student is unknown.
“We encourage any student who witness crimes like this or who find videos like this to let us or school staff know,” Zink said in an email.

CCSD said in a statement that it cannot discuss individual student disciplinary matters, citing privacy laws.
In general, students could face administrative action at school or be referred to law enforcement for possible prosecution depending on the severity, according to CCSD.
“We strongly encourage students and members of the community not to share footage of this incident or any other student fights. Showing this video serves no purpose other than to further ridicule and embarrass the victim and embolden bullies,” the school district said.
On Saturday, Board President Irene Cepeda and Superintendent Jesus F. Jara released statements regarding the incident.
“The CCSD Board of School Trustees and superintendent take every incident of violence seriously, regardless of who commits the violence. As recently as last Wednesday (3. Focus: 2024 Priority Area Ensure Students and staff are safe and students are engaged at school), at our joint work session, the trustees and superintendent reiterated their commitment to safety in schools and ensuring schools are places where students and staff feel safe, and education can occur,” said Board President Irene Cepeda.
“Violent acts, assaults, and bullying will not be tolerated in the Clark County School District, and those who choose to engage in these activities will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,” said Superintendent Jesus F. Jara.
