In the last seven days, there have been three incidents at Edison High School in Northeast Minneapolis. Two involved students, but the latest involved parents.

A letter sent home with students on Monday from Principal Eryn Warne said the incident escalated in the morning and involved two parents.

“When two parents caused a disturbance in our school, outside law enforcement joined staff and our School Resource Officer in resolving the situation. In order to ensure student safety during this time, we called a code yellow and kept all students in their classrooms,” said Warne in the letter.

The incident is connected to two fights last week involving students. On Monday, a 15-year-old girl suffered a concussion after three female students assaulted her. Then on Thursday, a 14-year-old student was knocked unconscious and taken to the hospital by ambulance.

Warne said it was an unfortunate situation and resulted from “poor choices” of a few individuals. "We must keep working together to keep our school community safe for all.”
