CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — According to Chesterfield County Public Schools, students at Meadowbrook High School were on lockdown and then dismissed in a modified fashion following a fight.

A representative with the school district said that a small group of students got into a fight in the hallway towards the end of the school day.

The lockdown lasted 30 minutes and administrators used that time to clear the fight.

Dismissal was modified for bus riders.
