A letter went home to parents of students at School #46. Apparently, there was a melee at the 6th grade graduation ceremony among parents and arrests were made. The school had to go into lockdown and kids had to eat lunch in class.

    The letter reads in part:

    The reception following our Sixth-Grade Moving Up Ceremony was disrupted by four parents involved in an altercation with each other. The Rochester Police Department was called and the parents were arrested. Pepper spray was used by used by the parents in the situation. No students were injured.

    This is not the way any of us wanted to end our school year.

    The letter came to me from a parent whose son attends the school. I’m curious what started this and the charges. Read the letter below:
