SHARE Fist fight breaks out at elementary school meeting

Because nothing says “great role models” like a fist fight between adults at an elementary school meeting!

It seems that while parents at other schools are upset about that annex being built for Lincoln Elementary, internal deliberations at Lincoln are much more fractious. At a meeting last night, according to DNA Info, things got heated because of objections raised by a community group upset the plans were approved without input from neighborhood residents who don’t have children in the school. Things boiled over and punches were thrown because of course.

DNA even got video of the fracas below.

That’s Lincoln’s principal Mark Armendariz chastising one of the fight participants as he escorts him out.

Under current plans, the construction on the annex would begin next summer, running through summer of 2015 with renovations to the existing building happening in the summer of 2015 as well, meaning everything would be nice, shiny, and new by the start of the 2015-16 school year.
