Extra security was place at Cheltenham High School on Thursday after a fight led to the arrests of four students and left eight teachers injured. That security will remain in place this week and next week, the school district said in a statement. Meanwhile, a meeting was being held between the school superintendent and teachers’ union representatives to discuss what happened.
According to the teacher’s union, they will present demands and suggestions about the ongoing problem of fighting in the school. The union rep says the staffers’ concerns for safety have been ignored by the superintendent. One of the students arrested is identified as 18-year-old Amber Nicole Lewis, a high school senior. She faces four counts of aggravated assault and conspiracy. The other students are juveniles who who remained in custody as of Wednesday night.
