POLAND

A high-school student serving a 10-day suspension for fighting also is facing expulsion.

Police said a 17-year-old female senior assaulted a 16-year-old female junior last Tuesday. After lunch, words were exchanged, and a fight ensued between the two, with the senior being the assailant, officers said.

The 16-year-old had two large, swollen lumps on the left part of her forehead and the back of her head and was taken to a doctor for treatment, police said.

Juvenile-court authorities are reviewing the case to determine if charges should be filed against the senior.

The teen immediately was given a 10-day suspension with a recommendation for expulsion, said Superintendent Robert Zorn.

“If you fight in school, you get suspended. ... The reason for [the expulsion recommendation] is the severity of the fight according to the principal,” Zorn said.

The girl who was injured was not disciplined, he added.

“She was on the receiving end and tried to protect herself,” Zorn said.
