On Thursday, more fights prompted the school to go into a control campus status. The school opened on Friday under the same status with added sheriff's deputies on campus.

"We will not tolerate this violent and disruptive behavior," said Principal Jason Jones.

To better secure the campus more school resource officers will be on site through the end of the school year.

Deputies will also have more of a presence and a security guard will now be at the school's front gate.

Principal Jones said he is looking into buzzing visitors in to the main hallway as an added measure of security.
