Back on Oct. 26, State Police in Schuylkill Haven say they responded to a report of a fight at the Schuylkill Intermediate Unit 29.

Police say the fight erupted during a lunch period between 2 students, a 16-year-old girl from Pine Grove and a 16-year-old boy from Pottsville.

During the brouhaha, one of the students tried to punch a staff member twice but missed each time, police say. Staff attempted to physically restrain the student but during that scuffle, the student kicked a staff member.

That incident provoked the other student involved to cause a disturbance by kicking an entry door to the school, shattering its glass.
