6 Arrested at MFHS Following Fight Thursday

Police say two people who were not students were allowed into the school by students; four students were involved in the fight, according to CBS 58.

Six people were arrested Thursday at Menomonee Falls High School following a fight that included people who were let into the school by students, according to a news report.

According to CBS 58, four students were involved in the fight, along with two people who were not students. Those two people were admitted onto school grounds by students. School doors are locked during the day.

A similar episode happened Wednesday at Waukesha North High School, when an expelled former student came back to confront his ex-girlfriend and her friend. In that case, he flagged down a student inside the school to let him in a side door.

Menomonee Falls Principal Corey Golla told CBS 58 that there are severe consequences for breaching school security in the way that it was.

School security has been a hot topic nationally following the . The vice president of the NRA called for an armed guard in every school following that tragedy.

All doors should have alarms, each hall should have Cam feeds to one location . Outside fence around the school and two locations in and out . Also close the campus and all employees sign in and out . Slected teachers or staff have Tazers and trained in self defense tactics . Lastly form a security committee with Staff which meets monthly .

We need more factual info here, were all the students involved residents of MF, and what about the two non-students, who were they, were any of the students part of the 220 program. Let's have some answers.

i agree

I too would like more detail, but I'm thankful this isn't an everyday occurence. I believe the Falls has a pretty good track record addressing all kinds of issues that affect students negatively. I don't think they have to turn MFHS into a virtual prison in order to keep the school safe. If you're going to that, do you implement the same measures to all the schools in the district? What about all private schools? Like they say about burgulars, It donesn't matter how safe you think your house is, if they want to break in they'll find a way. Bottom line, remove the bad apples from the barrel and quickly as possible.

What is the school's policy on fighting and ultimate arrest? Sure hope they are expelled!
Amy January 20, 2013 at 10:55 PM
Your last line is perfectly said.
Amy January 20, 2013 at 10:57 PM
That would be the most appropriate action to take!
Amy January 20, 2013 at 11:12 PM
Whatever happened to ZERO tolerance?

When I went to school at MFHS that would have been grounds for suspension at the very least. Because it was students letting other students in to get involved in the fight I feel expulsion should be in order. There are no consequences anymore for anything. Menomonee Falls used to be a top notch school. Dick Woosencraft ran a tight ship and parents stood behind him and made their kids take the consequences. That is part of the problem. Parents don't maKe their children face the consequences of their actions.

Expulsion!
MF resident January 20, 2013 at 11:59 PM
When students realize there are SERIOUS consequences to fighting behavior (expulsion) they will cease doing it! When the students see these same individuals back in school the next day they see it as fighting has NO consequences. We are losing a grip on this High School! This new principal needs to get better control !!
MF resident January 21, 2013 at 12:05 AM
This city/village needs to DEMAND the new principal lay down the law....up to this point he has been a softie. MF .... You need to speak up!

CBS 58 is still in business?

I agree, remove the bad apples from the barrel ASAP and do not invite more in to our school system! We pay a large amount of taxes here for our kids to get a good education and not have to worry about all of these outside issues that most could be avoided! This last incident that just happened is unbelievable! When are we going to take this seriously before something terribly wrong happens to our kids!
Susan H January 28, 2013 at 02:45 AM
Well Said!!!
MF Parent January 28, 2013 at 05:26 PM
What did the kids in the school do that was enough to have other kids seek them out at school? I know the school board meeting tonight (1/28) has a bunch of parents coming to attend who sent out emails about this issue and are discussing concerns about the schools ability to address issues with 220 students. It's open to the public, so I am sure anyone can get the scoop tonight.

no, this is a small suburban town which is actually close to the northern part of milwaukee, but nothing like this has happened in years.
