HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - Police and school security were called to James Dawson Elementary on Friday after a fight broke out at the conclusion of a Pre-K celebration. Five people were issued criminal trespass warnings.
Many schools are holding graduation events this week and next week, and after the ceremony at Dawson, some adults got into a personal dispute, according to Huntsville City Schools spokesperson Keith Ward.
Ward said the individuals were made to leave the cafeteria, but they continued to fight in the parking lot.
Ward said Dawson Elementary was placed on lockdown for the safety of students and staff. Huntsville Police, along with Huntsville City Schools security were called to the campus.
"The district has an expectation that all parents, guardians, and other visitors to our schools will act as positive role models for our students," said Ward. "Behavior that is unprofessional or is a disruption to the educational process will not be tolerated."
The school issued criminal trespass warnings to five people, and police documented them in case reports. If they come back on campus, they can be arrested for trespassing, police said.
