Just wanted to let you know we had an incident in the neighborhood before school today (May 24) involving some Bay View students where a man was beaten up. A school bus driver saw what happened and contacted the school. The school safety staff called 911 right away and the Violence Free Zone staff went to the scene, detaining students until police arrived. Our safety staff, who were in contact with the VFZ staff, stayed on the telephone with police, helping to coordinate efforts to locate and apprehend the suspects. I understand five individuals have been arrested. It is important to note that MPS Central Administration and BVHS staff are working tirelessly with us on improving the school. There are bumps in the road but I do see gradual improvement.
