The Little Rock Police Department was called to provide additional assistance after two afternoon fights at Central High School Thursday.
Pamela Smith, the Little Rock School District spokesperson, shared the message that Principal Nancy Rousseau sent to families:
I regret that I have to share with you that we have had two altercations today involving girls – one in the cafeteria and one on the second floor in front of the auditorium. We have sent all the students home as we attempt to determine the root cause of these incidents. Fortunately, no one was hurt. We were able to get additional security and LRPD to our campus to assist.
We work every day to teach our students how to deal with conflict. We appreciate parents letting us know if their child comes home with information about a conflict. Please always reach out to us immediately so we can intervene. Our students’ safety and security is our primary priority. Thank you for your continued support.
The police dispatch log showed that officers were called at 12:30 p.m. Mark Edwards, the LRPD spokesperson, said that there were no weapons involved and no arrests were made.
