Local Roundup: Student numbers exceed last year

CNJ staff

Clovis Municipal Schools enrollment is up slightly from last year, according to school officials.
Clovis Schools Superintendent Rhonda Seidenwurm said 7,884 students attended school Thursday, which is up 99 students compared to last year.
First day enrollment was unavailable, Seidenwurm said.
“We had several classes that didn’t get counted and things were kind of hectic,” she said.
Seidenwurm expects enrollment will continue to increase over the next week.
“Typically it’s about the fourth or fifth day that we break the 8,000 mark. We just have a lot of kids who just aren’t back in school the first few days,” Seidenwurm said.

Warrant issued in robbery case
An arrest warrant has been issued for a 21-year-old Clovis man in connection with an armed robbery at an apartment Wednesday night, police said.
Stephen Levenshown and three other suspects forced their way into an apartment, threatened a male victim at gun point and beat him, and stole an Xbox video game system, Clovis Capt. Patrick Whitney said.
The victim was treated at Plains Regional Medical Center and released, Whitney said.
The robbery occurred around 11 p.m. in the 1000 block of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.
Victims were able to identify Levenshown, police said.
