“Many parents are well aware of their child’s participation, hosting some in their garages or basements,” Sims wrote. “When your children create TikToks and Instagram pages using Lunsford’s name, and then try to organize these fights in our hallways and bathrooms, we will take action.”

The principal said the school held a “reset” on Friday in which students came and reported directly to counselors and were not allowed their usual 20 minutes of free time in the morning to socialize.

“Unfortunately, some students created a very unsafe situation for everyone and we needed to be able to calmly begin our education for the day,” Sims said in the letter.
