In the first six weeks of school, Galt High School students have reportedly been involved in more on-campus fist fights than all of last school year.

School administrators called an impromptu public safety meeting last week to discuss the issue, and is planning a future event to create a positive campus atmosphere, according to interim Principal Maria Orr.

    Nice lazy piece of journalism quoting the one parent who is unhappy with the way a few isolated, recent incidents are being handled. She does not speak for the majority and made more than one inappropriate comment chastising the administrators during the Tuesday night parent meeting. As Mrs. Orr said, the fights that have taken place on campus had nothing to do with students being grouped together at lunch.

    I am pleased that GHS administrators are taking swift action by implementing a program that has proven results in other districts with similar issues. The dozen or so kids I've talked to don't have a problem with the boundaries that are enforced during lunch, nor do they have a problem voicing their concerns to teachers or administrators.

    I hope that more parents will take an interest in what's going on on campus and attend the workshops that the school is planning so that there's a concerted effort to move forward in a positive way. I also hope that you'll do a little more groundwork on your stories in the future and not just bite on what you're fed.
