MISCOUCHE, P.E.I. - RCMP are investigating an altercation between two teens at Miscouche Consolidated School.

The alleged fight was between two students in Grade 9 on Jan. 12, said Sgt. Darrell Gill with East Prince RCMP. Gill would not discuss further details of the incident while the matter is under investigation.

When contacted by the Journal Pioneer, Parker Grimmer, superintendent for the Public Schools Branch (PSB), maintained all 56 schools in the province are great learning environments.

“We always take such incidents seriously. The matter has been dealt with seriously by the staff at Miscouche consolidated and also our PSB staff. We are unable to comment further.

We always conduct our own investigation once the police investigation has concluded.”

Grimmer said he’s not sure this incident was related to bullying, but if it was, “we would be working to address it at that school.”

“We support safe, caring learning environments through our incident response protocol, our procedures, our partnerships that we have with others and the direction we take from others like the police,” said Grimmer.
