Students and parents are speaking out about the violence, rumors and action taken at Preble High School.
Five days since the first fight broke out during lunch, students still have the incident fresh on the minds.
"They were just like talking to each other and I don't know. All of a sudden, they started putting their fists up and just went at it," said Preble student Cody, who did not want to provide his last name. His friend, who did not want give his name, adds "After the fight, they threw up gang signs."
The following day, Gaby Gamboa's freshman son witnessed another fight, this time outside, after school.
"He just called me right away, and he said 'I want to talk to you.' I said 'What's going on?' He said 'I just want to run, I just want to run, I was at the front (of the school),'" explained Gamboa. She then asked what happened. And he described the scene like it was a movie.
Administration, police and students kept an eye on social media, as rumors went flying.
"I guess it's scary if you hear guns in the school, that there are kids bringing guns to school," said one student, who wanted to stay anonymous.
Green Bay Police responded by being prepared.
A student recalls on Friday "They (officers) were carrying some big guns around."
Students say they have noticed tensions have eased Monday.
"It seems more relaxed today," says Cody.
Preble junior Randy Bialcik agrees "Over the weekend, I think administration with the help of the cops and downtown Green Bay Public School District in general, they got a handle on the situation better."
Some parents say they're thankful they were kept in the loop via phone messages and e-mail.
"We got multiple updates on Friday, which were very nice and then other updates over the weekend, and that really went above and beyond for us," says parent of two freshmen, Denise Hutchison.
Others are fed up with this kind of behavior at their children's school.
"Right away, I thought about it," said Gamboa. "I said I'm gonna move you (her son) from this school."
