PVHS, police investigating 'large fight'

Prairie View High School administrators, Brighton police and school security officers are investigating what's been called "a large fight" that happened during lunch period March 2 in the nearby Orchard Church parking lot.
Principal Michael Burke outlined the events in a Facebook post. He said during the fight, more than 100 students were in the area and that several students were involved in several altercations. Two other, separate fights took place inside the school.
Burke said staff and officers did not see any weapons. But in response, administrators installed a "no-pass" period to keep students in their third-period classes.
"We are still investigating all aspects of the events that occurred, and there have been and continue to be consequences for students who were involved in the disruptions from these fights," the Facebook post said. "This is not who we are at PVHS. We are better than this. Our students model and live our core values. Our students challenge themselves to take rigorous classes and persevere even in the midst of a global pandemic. Our students push themselves to be the best that they can perform on the athletic field and on the stage. Our students leave our school as good humans and make a positive impact on the world."
Burke said the school will not put up with students "who come to our school and disrupt our learning environment in such a way that completely disregulates our staff and students." He added students "will be held to expectations that they are more than capable of maintaining." He also asked for conversations between parents and students "so we can restore the balance to the learning environment at PVHS immediately."
