Bronson Middle/High School bullying
LEVY COUNTY, Fla. -- School leaders across North Central Florida are actively engaged in putting an end to bullying, but the fact is, it still happens.
One mom in Levy County says her daughter was the victim of bullying, but school officials are telling a different story. According to this mom, her daughter, a middle school student, and another girl who's in high school have been arguing with each other for the past month. Last Friday, the school intervened and issued a no contact order between the two girls.
But Levy County sheriff's officials say the middle school student violated the no contact order the same day and was sent home. Officials say the two girls went back and forth with each other on Facebook over the weekend. Tuesday morning, the middle school student challenged the high school student at school in an area normally designated for high schoolers.
Officials say the middle school student appears to be the instigator. Both girls have been suspended from school for five days. Sheriff's officials say the school resource deputy is conducting an investigation to determine if any battery charges need to be filed against either of the students.
