Fight on Valley High campus leaves six students arrested

Six students face arrest and a school staff member suffered a minor injury after a fight occurred this morning just before class started at Valley High School.

The fight broke out about 7:55 a.m. in the front parking lot at the school, 6300 Ehrhardt Ave., said Elizabeth Graswich, spokeswoman for the Elk Grove Unified School District. The fight involved four 16 year old and two 15 year old boys.

The fighting stemmed from an on-going dispute in the community that until this morning had not cropped up on campus. Officials did not release the cause of the dispute.

One of the 16-year-old boys was transported to the hospital with a complaint of shoulder pain. A school staff member also suffered a minor injury.

A uniformed officer assigned to the campus and school staff responded to quell the fight. Back-up was also called.

All six students will be arrested for suspicion of fighting on campus, Graswich said. She said Valley High has an award-winning counseling staff that will be working with students on conflict-mediation to resolve any issues.
