Video footage of a fight between two male students in a restroom at Abilene High School surfaced on social media roughly two weeks ago prompting questions in the community about how the school handles such situations. The fight took place Nov. 14.

“When information comes our way (about an altercation) we do our best to investigate as much as we can the entirety of the story,” said Ben Smith, school principal. “If we find out we have students who have engaged in fighting, they are both suspended.”
