What education officials called a “potential riot” has led to a shelter-in-place at John F. Kennedy High School.

At approximately 11:40 a.m. the shelter-in-place procedure was initiated when students started fighting.

“Rioting occurs when four or more students participate in violent or disorderly conduct where injury or property damage may occur,” according to the Department of Education press release. “The Guam Police Department is on-site responding to this incident. GDOE School Resource Officers have also been dispatched to assist. We will inform the public once the all clear has been given.”

According to JFK’s bell schedule, the high school’s day ends at 1:45 p.m. Students are being released "in a controlled manner" at the dismissal time, DOE officials stated.
