MUSKEGON, Mich.– All schools have a plan in place, but it’s during times like Tuesday’s incident at Muskegon High School that put that plan to the test.
Quick action and quick thinking is key, to keep everything and everyone under control.
Muskegon High School has had a liaison officer from the Muskegon Police Department stationed in the school for years and today having him there may have helped things from escalating even more.
Superintendent Jon Felske says the officer was first on the scene and was able to call for additional assistance to help break up the fights.
While police worked to get students under control, the school went into a soft lockdown. Parents were then called to pick up students who were in the cafeteria during the fight and all doors were monitored to keep a close eye on those coming and going.
Police and school officials will now review the schools video surveillance, which will hopefully paint a better picture of just what exactly happened and who was involved.
