Video posted on social media shows fight at Harper Creek HS

BATTLE CREEK, Mich. — A video making the rounds on social media shows a fight at Harper Creek High School.

The video was posted on YouTube earlier this week.

Rob Ridgeway, superintendent at Harper Creek Community Schools, confirmed to FOX 17 the video was filmed at Harper Creek High School. He says because the incident involved students he can’t share information due to student confidentiality rights.

Ridgeway also says, “It is unfortunate the incident was perpetuated by the use of social media,” and that the school does not condone this type of conflict resolution and the safety of the students is of “paramount” importance.

Yes, the incident in the video occurred at Harper Creek High School. The safety of our students is of paramount importance. The school district does not condone this type of conflict resolution.

Because the incident involved students, we are unable to share information due to student confidentiality rights. It is unfortunate the incident was perpetuated by the use of social media. We will continue to put student safety first.

    That one student that hit first was standing up for his self because the other student was talking bad things about him and calling him names ect. I would of done the same thing, the other student did not get in trouble for bullying that student so he wanted to make it stop. That kid known right then and there that he was not going to win so thats y he did that. Harper creek they say they care for there students but they ever do anything when kids tell them what is going on. Its a good school but the kids need to have more rules then they do now.
