In a statement to parents, the school said it was working with local police to ensure there was “additional supervision” at the school’s basketball game and during class the following day.
“Incidents like these are taken very seriously and action was taken immediately to ensure the safety of our students and staff,” Principal Kim Budde’s statement said.
Police were called to the scene and parked on the school’s basketball field to provide “additional supervision.”
Principal Kim Budde threatened disciplinary action for any students found sharing the footage of the fight.
‘As always, when situations arise that put others at risk, school administration acts quickly to investigate and ensure a safe school environment.
‘Unfortunately, several students chose to film these incidents on their phones. It is important for students to know that our school condemns the use of personal devices in this manner.
“Any student who shares or posts videos of these incidents will face the possibility of disciplinary action.”
The fight comes after an altercation at Minneapolis’ St. Louis Park High School in which a “race-driven” fight broke out between black and Somali students that led to the arrest of at least two adults accused of joining the fight.
Abreeha Annalisa Smith, 22, and Latoys Renail Milon, 41, were arrested but later released without charge after fights broke out last month.
The initial altercation broke out between a group of black and Somali students, he said CrimeWatchMinneapolisbut the situation worsened when the parents, after learning about the incident, allegedly joined the fight along with their children.
