Student involved in Lincoln High School brawl returning to school

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — The student involved in a brawl that broke out at Lincoln High School last February will return to school, prompting a response from the San Diego Schools Police Officers Association. A campus police officer suffered a concussion during the violent outbreak. 

"When the SDSPOA was informed late last week that the student, who injured a school police officer, would return to Lincoln High School, we were caught off guard and utterly disappointed," part of the statement read. "The disappointment stems from SDUSD turning their back on the students of Lincoln High School. In meetings with their student body leadership, district representatives, the School Police Department and our association, we all agreed we needed to work together to get past this."

District representatives had agreed that the students involved in the fight would not return to the school, according to the statement from the SDSPOA, as part of an agreement made between both sides. The campus officer involved in the altercation was involuntarily transferred in a decision the SDSPOA did not contend in order for a "fresh start" to take place. 

The first day of school at Lincoln High School is Monday, Aug. 29.
