Six Students Arrested After Fight On Sacramento-Area School Campus

School To Have Added Security On Campus Before And After Classes

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Six students have been arrested after a fight broke out on a Sacramento-area high school campus just before classes started Monday morning.

The brawl, which officials said turned into a 3-on-3 fist fight, broke out just before 8:0a.m. on the campus of Valley High School at 6300 Earhardt Avenue in Sacramento.

School officials say the fight involved six students and stemmed from an ongoing, off-campus dispute that spilled onto campus.

“It’s been going on for a while,” said Elk Grove Unified School District spokesperson Elizabeth Graswich. “We’ve been monitoring it. It hasn’t spread to campus before now.”

All six students have been arrested.

Police and deputies were called to help disperse the estimated 200 students who had been watching the fight.

One student and a teacher, who tried to break up the fight, were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

In a letter being sent out to parents, the school district says it will have “additional law enforcement on campus before and after school in the coming weeks as an added precaution.”

The school, which is part of the Elk Grove Unified School District, has a little over 1,500 students in attendance.

    Kick’em out, let the parents deal with it. Parents either need to stop having kids or raise them.

  • Cambriz

    Valley is just like everyother high school. The only difference is that the media only focuses on us whenever anything negative occurs. I’ve heard plenty of things about other high schools in the area, it’s funny how they don’t show up on the news.
