Jefferson Altercation on January 29

January 29, 2020



We are writing you today to make you aware of a physical altercation that occurred in a Jefferson hallway this morning primarily between two students. Staff members were able to break up the altercation relatively quickly, and those students involved will face discipline consistent with school and district policy.


While a fight involving two students would not normally rise to the level of requiring school-wide notification, we realize that we are in a heightened climate, and thus wanted to bring this incident to your attention. 


More importantly, we want to stress that we will absolutely not tolerate physical violence at Jefferson Middle School. We are proud of the behavior our students model day in and day out, and we will not allow inappropriate conduct to disrupt our learning environment.


As parents/ guardians, we ask that you please assist us by reinforcing behavior expectations with your children. Additionally, you are encouraged to monitor your child’s online presence as well as their social media usage - doing so can help prevent school conflict.



Thank you for your time.


Molly Schaefer and Clarence Berry, Principals

Jefferson Middle School
