Six suspended after fights at South Tahoe High School

Three fights at South Tahoe High School on Thursday resulted in six suspensions, officials said Friday.

STHS Associate Principal Jack Stafford said two fights happened within five minutes of one another, and the last fight occured later.

Stafford said he didn’t know what started the fights.

The police took the six female juveniles into custody, and drove them to the Juvenile Treatment Center on Thursday.

The students will be suspended for five days. No weapons were used in the fights.

Some of the females are associated with certain cliques, Stafford said.

Nationally, females have been forming more cliques and becoming violent, Stafford said.

Stafford said the high school’s proirity is to keep the students, faculty and staff safe.

“We’re a school,” Stafford said. “It’s not a battle ground.”
