Fights put Pearl City High into lockdown

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 01:30 a.m. HST, Nov 03, 2012

Pearl City High School was on lockdown for about two hours Friday following several fights on campus.

Principal Carlyn Fujimoto said a large fight occurred during lunch that prompted school officials to call police and order students to their classrooms.

She said police arrested one student for his "disorderly conduct."

Meanwhile, two students were taken to the hospital: one after being restrained, a second because she was hyperventilating, Fuji­moto said.

The school was on lockdown, with students confined to their classrooms, from about 12:15 to 2:15 p.m., when school was finished.

Fujimoto said the school was investigating what caused the fight, and how many students will need to be disciplined.

She also said the fight did not appear to be related to a skirmish on campus between two girls that occurred earlier in the day.

Pearl City High has about 1,700 students.

Some days are really tough on any school campus. Safe and Civil school strategies for making positive environments, teachers more visible on campus for lunch, transitions, before and after school, greeting and recognizing students makes a more civilized school. We need to put more adult engagement into schools to keep students connected to the larger conventions of civilized behavior. Fights persist when the Rituals and Routines are not established and practiced and conventions of order in society.

So true! Enforced routines will prevent a lot of this bad behavior. I would think that this behavior is from a one or two groups. This doesn't add up to an individual thing.
