We just received this from Denny International Middle School principal Jeff Clark, who says it was sent to all families at Denny and adjacent Chief Sealth International Middle School:

Dear Denny and Sealth Scholars and Families,

We want to share information with you regarding an incident that occurred today.

Towards the end of 8th grade lunchtime today at 12:30 pm, three high-school-age kids who do not attend Denny or Chief Sealth came onto the sidewalk near the northern end of the Denny playfield on Kenyon St. They had an altercation with a Denny 8th grader, which was very quickly broken up by staff (no weapons were involved). Due to the fact that they do not attend our schools and that they wore bandanas, Denny staff called the Seattle Police Department, who quickly responded. The non-students left the area quickly and have been identified. We are working with Police Department to follow-up with next steps.

Today after school there was an extra presence of Police in the Denny parking lot and in the Denny/Sealth surrounding neighborhood area. Thank you to the Denny staff, our scholars, and the Police Department for addressing this situation quickly and thoroughly.

The letter was signed by Clark and by Sealth principal Aida Fraser-Hammer.
