A reader inquired about the incident, which was confirmed by a spokesperson for DeKalb County Schools.

“DeKalb County School District Police is investigating a fight that occurred between two students at Druid Hills High School on March 22,” the district spokesperson said. “An administrative assistant was injured while breaking up the fight.
