Two mothers caused a ruckus last week when they showed up at Wauwatosa East High School to intervene for their daughters who felt threatened.
According to a Wauwatosa Police Department report:
Administrators heard a commotion in the hallway and found parents and students yelling at each other at 12:50 p.m. Jan. 5. A student had been walking out to go to a doctor's appointment when the mother of a classmate grabbed her arm and threatened to beat up the girl and her mother.
Meanwhile, another mother chased a girl down the hall using profane language.
Neither parent had permission to be inside the school.
The mothers said their daughters had sent text messages saying they were afraid they were going to be attacked. The mothers showed up to have words with the supposed bullies.
Administrators said there have been numerous conflicts among the students involved and school and police have talked about their behavior, instituted in-school discipline, sent them home and issued citations. This time, the 16-year-old girls had to sign no-contact orders and the school's bullying, cell phone and visitor policies were reviewed with the students and parents.
