SANTA CLARITA – Classes resumed Monday at Golden Valley High School, but some tension remained from last week’s lunchtime brawl that authorities said was fought along racial lines. Seven students were arrested Friday on suspicion of battery on school grounds in a fight that started between two boys and quickly developed into a melee among an estimated 20 more. The seven were later released to their parents. William S. Hart Union High School District officials said the fight erupted as a sequel to one at a private party a few days earlier. Fearing another flare-up, some parents decided to keep their kids home from school Monday. Castellanos said Golden Valley teachers on Monday talked with students about tolerance and told them to alert adults when troubling situations occur. He had no immediate count of how many Golden Valley students stayed home Monday. He noted that some parents kept Hart High School students home after a fight on campus in August. The superintendent said he hopes Golden Valley parents and students will keep Friday’s fight in perspective. “I just want people not to push the panic button that things are going to hell in a handbasket, when that’s not the case at all,” he said. Canyon Country father Frank Adams said he’s upset with the way Golden Valley and district officials have responded, and doesn’t know where to turn for help for his son, who is black. Adams said his son, a sophomore football player, was defending himself Friday after weeks of tolerating threats from others. Adams said his son was previously surrounded and threatened in a school bathroom by boys who stopped only when an adult walked in. Adams said witnesses told him his 15-year-old son was jumped on campus Friday in behavior that sparked the larger fight. On Monday, school officials sat down with the 15-year-old and his parents to hear his side of the story. Officials are now deciding whether to take disciplinary action against him and others. Adams said his son was asked at the meeting whether he should have handled the situation differently Friday. “How else do you handle it when someone swings on you?” the father remarked. “They said he should have gone to a counselor.” Principal Jacque Snyder and the district’s diversity coordinator, Greg Lee, did not return phone calls seeking comment.

Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies were on standby during lunch periods, but all remained quiet at the school. Milliken said his son, a school football player of mixed racial heritage, and some of his friends have had racial slurs hurled at them on campus for months and have been threatened with violence in the school bathrooms. Milliken fears that the day will come when his son will be unable simply to walk away from these situations, and he wants his son transferred to another school before that happens. The father met this month with school officials, who told him they are investigating the racial-slurs claims. Whether in bullying or name-calling, Golden Valley High School hasn’t had more problems with race than any other school in the district, said Jaime Castellanos, the district superintendent.
