SAN JOSE- We have only been on campus for about a month, exactly 20 days as of Sept. 8, 2021, and Creek has had close to 10 fights. Why? How is this school dealing with these issues? What is going on at Silver Creek High School?
Before we get into that, let’s first talk about the seriousness of this whole situation. If you, your friend, or even child, gets involved with someone and they’re being threatened, feel free to contact the school principal. You can reach Kelly Daugerty at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her (408)-347-5611. You can also contact other administrators on campus, including teachers.
After speaking to freshman Atianna Gonzalez she said, “I don’t think they are [the fights] affecting me at all. If you’re not involved with them [the people in the fights] then you are fine.” She wishes that staff on campus would “get in there and push them apart.” She expressed that if students aren’t affiliated with those in the fights, they have no reason to be worried.
Brianna Holmes, a senior, “Honestly the fights are not affecting me at all. I think some people are worried they’re gonna get jumped randomly but as long as you’re not starting arguments people will leave you alone.” Holmes continues to praise the staff by saying “I think the staff is doing a good job handling the students that have been fighting, at this point I don’t think there’s much more they can do.”
After hearing what an lowerclassmen and upperclassmen have to say, does it help or change your perspective? This issue on campus tends to be selective groups, well almost all fights tend to be this way. Stick with the people you trust at this school and have at least one teacher you know you can always go to if you ever feel unsafe or need help. Make sure to also not shove yourself into drama; if you see a fight don’t run towards it, Protect yourself.
