TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) - A video posted online by students at a Tippecanoe County high school has many parents in the community concerned.
Attached to this story is the video that was sent to News 18 of a student at Harrison High School randomly approaching another student in the hallway and punching him in the face.
News 18 attempted to reach out to Tippecanoe School Corporation Superintendent Scott Hanback and Principal Doug Leslie at Harrison High School about the incident, but both declined an interview.
"The student responsible has been punished for his actions and it is the maximum punishment," TSC Superintendent Scott Hanback said in a phone conversation.
Leslie told News 18 they "deal with these issues firmly, fairly and aggressively. We do not tolerate this."
Hanback said they have identified and disciplined the two students who recorded the video and posted it to the web.
A shooting on Lafayette's south side is under investigation.
It's been nearly a month since a tornado damaged Southwestern Middle School and Mintonye Elementary School, giving faculty the task of helping students transition to their new surroundings.
