Cosumnes Oaks High School Calls Police To Break Up Fight; 2 Staff Sent To The Hospital

Fight At Cosumnes Oaks High School

The Elk Grove Tribune was notified at approximately 3:30 pm on Thursday November 1 that a fight had occurred at Cosumnes Oaks High School and that the Elk Grove Police were called. This incident occurred shortly after 3:15 pm when classes let out at Cosumnes Oaks High School.

Elk Grove Police and the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department responded to call. The incident created some alarm because a helicopter was seen over Horseshoe Park, which frightened residents and parents. The fight was quickly dispersed.

At approximately 4:30 pm the letter below was emailed out to Cosumnes Oaks High School parents.

Xanthi Pinkerton Updated Statement 2

There was a large gathering of students watching a fight between 2-3 people at 3:15 p.m. at Cosumnes Oaks High School near the bike racks. Because of the large number of onlookers, units were called in to help with dispersal.

Lockdown Incident At Cosumnes Oaks High School

Earlier this year on March 7, Cosumnes Oaks High School and the nearby Elizabeth Pinkerton Middle School were both placed in a lockdown. In that situation, a rumor had arose that a student had a weapon. The Elk Grove Police were called and the school was searched and cleared. No weapon was found and no arrests were made.

Afterwards, prompted by the lockdown and multiple incidents of gun violence in schools nation-wide, Elk Grove students participated in a 17 minute walkout on March 14, which was approved by Elk Grove Unified School District.

In situations like this when police are called or when an incident occurs, parents are urged to call the school to find out what is happening to the students.
