BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — A fight broke out between three students on a Boston Public School bus Friday morning.

The other students on the bus were evaluated by EMS and were transferred to school on a new bus, the school system claimed.

All families of students on the bus have been notified by BPS.

“Violence of any kind is not tolerated in the Boston Public Schools,” the school district’s statement said. “Our buses are an extension of our classrooms.”

Students on the bus were between third to eighth grade.

This situation remains under investigation and no further details have been released.
