WYNNE, AR (KAIT) - A new statement has been issued by the superintendent of the Wynne School District following a fight on the high school campus last week.
Superintendent Carl Easley said Tuesday, in part, that as a result of an investigation into the fight 17 students have been suspended "for a period of not less than 6 days and not more than 10 days."
"The school system didn't handle it at all, we haven't even heard from our school district to be exact," said Paris Riley, who has nieces and nephews at Wynne High School.
Twelve students were initially arrested on September 27 when the fight broke out. There is no word on if charges will be filed against any of the juveniles at this time.
Here is Easley's full statement:
"It's a touchy situation because if the school can't tell us how they are going to protect once they're there, we don't know," Riley said.
