An increase in altercations between several small groups of students at Danbury High School has prompted additional police presence inside the school, in addition to city and school officials enforcing the district’s ‘zero tolerance’ policy.
All of the students involved in recent disruptive behaviors have been suspended from DHS and school officials say many have faced criminal charges. These students will be educated in other settings.
Any physical altercations at the high school, or any school, are prohibited; the same goes with bullying, intimidating or violent actions of any kind.
DHS Principal Dan Donovan sent a letter to parents addressing these concerns. Parents have been encouraged to ask students not to add to the tension by posting false information and comments on social media.
