FRAMINGHAM – The Framingham Public School District is taking action, after a fight at the high school, this afternoon, October 21, said the district’s Superintendent.
Just before students were dismissed for the day at Framingham High School, a fight broke out between two female students at the high school.
SOURCE received a video of the fight. The news outlet has published the video below and on our YouTube channel. The video has been published “blurred,” but it is still violent and contains language that is offensive.
The Framingham Police spokesperson said the department is “investigating” the fight.
Several students witnessed the fight in the hallway, and at least a couple of students videotaped it.
One Framingham High staff member is heard asking students “to put their phones away.”
Another male staff member then comes in, and breaks up the fight.
“We have a code of character conduct at the high school. When incidents happen we look at that code. This fight would require the most severe action under the code,” said Superintendent of Schools Bob Tremblay.
“The high school administration is working with police. It is 5 p.m. and we have already been cooperating with police, and contacting both families,” said Tremblay.
“This is egregious. We expect better from our students,” said Tremblay.
The “N word” is used in the video. Both girls are believed to be not white, but that has not been confirmed by authorities.
Framingham Public Schools has a zero-tolerance hate crime policy.
This is not the first fight at the high school this school year, but this is a brutal one.
This is not the first time there has been a vicious fight by girls at Framingham High.
There were at least two serious fights in the bathrooms the past couple of years.
Framingham High School has more than 2,400 students in grade 9-12.
There is a School Resource Officer (SRO) (a Framingham Police officer) assigned to the high school. There is also a SRO assigned to Keefe Technical High School.
