Cudahy Middle School dismisses students after pepper spray dispersal

CUDAHY -- Students at Cudahy Middle School have been dismissed following a pepper spray dispersal Wednesday morning. 

There was an altercation where a student discharged the spray, according to a statement. 

The Superintendent's office sent out a statement to parents just after 11 a.m. informing them of the sudden dismissal at 11:30 a.m. 

Cudahy Fire Department responded to the incident to assist in airing out the building. Both school and fire officials determined it was best to clear the building for the remainder of the day. 

Tuesday morning a similar incident happened at Cudahy High School. Wwo students were in an altercation ending with one discharging pepper spray into the hallway. However, the Cudahy Fire Department determined the irritant was contained to only a small section of the school so early dismissal was not necessary.
