Message from the J.O. Combs Unified School District Governing Board re: "Food Fight"

San Tan Valley Chamber of Commerce Ribbon Cutting welcoming Scrubs & More Boutique to the community and into the Chamber

After careful review of all of the facts surrounding the cafeteria incident of May 17, 2013, the School Board of J.O. Combs Unified School District stands behind and fully supports the decisions of the Combs High School Administration. Policies and procedures were followed appropriately. There are many facts which were not initially presented, or announced by the media, which fully support the discipline invoked, which involve the suspension of twelve students. Only three seniors were involved, among whom only one may have been eligible to participate in graduation ceremonies. The consequence of suspension prohibits students from being on campus, participating in extra-curricular activities or competing in competitive events. A suspension received this time of year impacts all end-of-the-year events, including the graduation ceremony.
