Some Montgomery County, Maryland, parents are upset that their child’s middle school waited two days to tell them about a fight that sent a student to the hospital. The fight between two girls happened at Lakelands Park Middle School in Gaithersburg last Wednesday during dismissal; and according to the school’s principal, it was broken up by adults who were nearby. On Friday, more than a day after the fight occurred, the school’s principal Sofía Vega-Ormeño sent a letter to parents notifying them about the serious fight.
