No arrests at Meadowdale HS after several fights bring officers from multiple agencies

A call for officer assistance was issued after several fights broke out at Meadowdale High School.

Deputies initially were called around 1:30 p.m. to the school on Whitestone Court after a female student was assaulted by several other students, according to a release from the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office.

While deputies were investigating that fight, other disturbances broke out, which led deputies around 2 p.m. to issue a “Signal 99” call for officer in need of assistance at the high school.

The school also was placed on lockdown to prevent further disturbances.

Crews from the sheriff’s office, Dayton Police Department, Trotwood Police Department and Five Rivers MetroParks responded along with additional Dayton school resource officers.

The signal 99 was canceled shortly after, but additional crews were still asked to respond.

Deputies and additional Dayton school resource officers remained at the school until its 4 p.m. dismissal. No arrests were made, and the incidents are under investigation.

We have reached out to Dayton Public Schools for a comment.
