The Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff's Office arrested 26 Independence High School students yesterday for fighting.

The students involved were charged with misdemeanor disturbing the peace by fighting, however school officials will determine if or what consequences they will face, and if and when they may return.

The school was subsequently placed on “lock down” which means minimal to restrictive movement on the school’s campus simply for the safety and protection of all students, facility, and staff members. 

Additional sheriff’s deputies are present on the school’s campus today strictly for precautionary measures.
