Sweetwater Elementary School in Port Orange is closed for the day after the assistant principal was attacked at the school.
Port Orange Police say the assistant principal was doing a sweep of the school grounds around 6:30 a.m. before school opened when he was attacked.  Investigators said he suffered superficial injuries.
Police are searching the area with K-9’s looking for the suspect and because of a nearby wooded area the search will take some time.
Nancy Waite from the Volusia County School Districts says at the recommendation of police they have closed the school for the day.  Waite says students that are on buses are being taken to another school in Port Orange where they can be picked up by parents.
The school is located at 5800 Victoria Gardens Blvd. in Port Orange.
