That’s what sprang to mind about noon as I was listening to the robo-call from Crystal Lake Grade School Director of Communications Lori Parish.
Read what she said and see if you come to a similar conclusion:
“School administrators have been contacted by Crystal Lake authorities and notified that some middle school students have been engaging in off campus fighting.
“We are cooperating fully with the Police Department as they investigate these incidents.
“While the events have occurred outside of school property, the school environment has been disrupted.
“The information is the majority of the students involved in the fighting reside in the south end of town.
“However, we have information that leads us to believe that students form the other D47 middle schools may have been involved.
“It is our expectation that this behavior will stop immediately.
“Fighting can be considered mob action and is punished as a felony.
“The police will determine what, if any, charges may be filed based on the outcome of their investigation.
“Please talk with your child of the inappropriateness of this type of behavior.”
Most children on the south side of town attend Lundahl Middle School.
