Nacogdoches, TX — At least 12 Nacogdoches High School students were sent to the district’s alternative education program last week for fighting and some parents are concerned because of rumors of a gang fight occurring today.
The district has received multiple calls from parents who said their children are scared to go to school today after hearing that rivaling gangs will be fighting.
“We did have several students last week involved in a physical altercation Thursday and Friday, and we increased our police support over there last Friday afternoon because we heard there was going to be a fight,” NISD Superintendent Fred Hayes said.
Rumors like that are heard throughout schools all the time, and certainly not just in NISD, but it’s important to take them seriously, he said.
