Serious Injuries Sustained in Middle School Fight

A seventh grade student was badly hurt in a bathroom brawl.

Schoolyard bullying turned violent this week at Hauppauge Middle School when a seventh grade boy was seriously injured during a bathroom brawl.

Principal Maryann Fletcher said that the incident originally came through as an accident, but after further investigation, the administration discovered that it was not.

According to a parent familiar with the incident, the victim of the assualt suffered a concussion and a broken nose. "This was a severe case," Fletcher said. She did not comment further on the injuries due to privacy laws.

Fletcher said that the administration is taking the incident very seriously.

"We take a very strong stance on bullying," she said.

A bullying assembly was held at both the Middle School and High School on Wednesday.

Fletcher explained that punishment for bullying can range from a classroom reprimanding to school suspension, or a superintendent's hearing in the most severe cases.

Since you decide to repeat yourself, I will also. You're a tool.

Calling Mrs. Fletcher a "bully"??? Are you for real, Mr. El? You and the other name calling "adult" should be ashamed of yourselves.
