Police were called to bring the situation under control, and staff quickly responded, he said.
"I want you to know that the vast majority of our students acted appropriately and followed safety precautions," Kearney said. "We will continue to work closely with Madison police on their investigation."
He said "appropriate consequences and supports" will be applied to the students involved. As for the two adults, the school is working with police "to apply legal consequences," Kearney said.
"Our students' safety is our top priority," he said. "We continue to work with our students and families to ensure our school is a safe and positive environment for all."
