“Unfortunately, a parent took it upon himself to verbally assault a principal that led to a serious physical altercation between him and a teacher as the teacher intended to protect the principal.”
Gibson told KCRA that the fight started when a parent who was frustrated with the school’s mask mandate saw his daughter walk out of the building with a face covering. After the parent got into an argument with the principal, a male teacher intervened, the superintendent said.

The teacher suffered “lacerations on his face, some bruising on his a face and a pretty good knot on the back of his head,” she told KCRA. He was treated at the hospital and later released Wednesday.
