Eight students from the Medway high school β€” five men and three women β€” were involved in four separate fights Tuesday and Wednesday, Principal Greg Howard said in an email to parents.

β€œThe school and police have been investigating all of these cases and the parents and guardians of the individuals involved have been contacted and consequences have been imposed or are imminent,” Howard said in the email.

Arva school officials were also warned on Tuesday of an unrelated threat on social media. The OPP was notified and determined there was no threat to student safety or public order, Howard said.

An OPP spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Thursday.

Videos of some of the fights were posted on social media, where baseless rumors were also circulating, Howard said.

“These rumors have been investigated and turned out to be untrue,” he said.

“We’ve had great support from parents and community members, including students who came forward with names and videos to help the office hold those involved in these incidents accountable.”

The recent inappropriate actions of some students do not reflect Medway’s school community, Howard said, who pledged to address any additional concerns and hold individuals accountable for their actions.
