Parents raise concerns after Oyster River High School student injured in fight
DURHAM - Concerns about a fight that left an Oyster River High School student with serious injuries brought parents out to a school board meeting Wednesday night, according to the Union Leader.
“The fight that occurred has really impacted all of us. We pride ourselves in being a caring community, a supportive community of our children, and I have to say this fight has done really serious harm to a community member,” Superintendent James Morse said.
The injured teen, who was taken to the hospital after the fight in Durham on June 3, was just moved to a rehabilitation facility.
Several parents wanted to know what the school was doing to address conflicts.
“I don’t really know what the high school provides for services on a day-to-day basis. Our kids are dealing with different things, like bullying, substance abuse — the list could go on and on," Deirore Boryszewski told the paper. "But as I went in the other day, I didn’t see any posters up about bullying, or any information about where the children can go.”
Linette Miles said rumors have been flying at the school since the incident, and she asked administrators to report on their investigation as soon as possible so the community can get to the root of the problem.
