Dr. William W. Henderson Inclusion School located in Boston is set to shut its doors until Friday due to a fight between a principal and a student that happened on Wednesday.


An officer from the Boston Police Department said when he arrived at the scene, the 61-year-old principal was on the ground unconscious surrounded by school staffers trying to help the beaten woman. The school authority, Patricia Lampron, was taken to the hospital where doctors reported serious injuries such as broken ribs and head injury, WBZ I-Team reported. Nonetheless, the injuries are not considered to be life-changing.

A culprit, who resorted to using force against the 61-year-old principal, has been arrested. 

It turned out to be a 16-year-old female student whose plans for the future were changed and now she is scheduled to attend Dorchester Juvenile Court on assault and battery charges.

There were reports that another staffer of Henderson Upper Campus suffered from her beating but the details are not provided.

The assault is known to have lasted in front of numerous students, parents, and school staffers.

“This violent behavior will not be tolerated,” Superintendent Brenda Cassellius said in an issued statement. “The health, safety, and well-being of our students and staff is our top priority at Boston Public Schools. I am personally involved and am ensuring we are taking immediate and swift action.”

The reason for the attack remains unknown.
