Girls at Butterfield Elementary in trouble over ‘hit list’


Maricopa Unified School District Superintendent Steve Chestnut sent out the following statement regarding an incident at Butterfield Elementary School:

“Today at Butterfield Elementary administrators were informed that three girls had created a ‘hit list’ that named three boys. Administrators investigated the situation and found that such a list had been created by the girls but they did not have the capability of following through on the threat. The parents of all of the children involved in this situation have been contacted. The girls who created the list are receiving disciplinary consequences as outlined in the MUSD Student Handbook.”
