The Government of the State of Mexico decided to suspend face-to-face classes in the federalized high school in which the assault with a firearm by a student on a janitor and a math teacher was recorded, so they will have online sessions on June 1 and 2.
Integrated Educational Services to the State of Mexico (SEIEM), equivalent to the state Ministry of Education, explained that their first action was immediate eviction of the school campus that is located in the municipality of Los Reyes La Paz, so there were no more students or teachers injured.
The organism added that the student of only 12 years of age I was in my first year at Federalized High School 80 “Cuauhtémoc” and that the injured janitor was the one who realized the minor’s intentions, for which he tried to arrest him.
It was at the moment of the struggle when the janitor himself was injured.
Due to the above, the secondary school authorities requested support from the municipal government to control the situation with local police officers.

After the acts of violence, the Council for School Coexistence (CONVIVE) provide social-emotional support to the student community, teachers, mothers and fathers.
