Superintendent Michelle King Statement Regarding Sylmar High School Incident

May 10, 2016
As the head of the most diverse school district in the nation, let me be very clear: We will not tolerate targeting or violence of any kind on our campuses.

Regarding the recent conflict at Sylmar High School, law enforcement is continuing to investigate. All parents and guardians have been notified about the incident, and appropriate disciplinary action is being taken.

We want to reassure parents that the safety of all students and staff remains our top priority. Extra counselors and support staff have been assigned to the school, along with additional school police.

On a personal note, I want to express my concern about any student who was injured. I wish them a speedy recovery.

The bottom line is that all students are welcome at L.A. Unified schools.
