However, some school officials at Upper Marlboro (PGCPS School system HQ) backed off the warning. See below.

Mr. Nate Newman had warned: “Parents don’t allow your children to go to Six Flags this weekend. Big gang fight planned. Retaliation from last incident.” As a result of this warning, many parents kept off and their children from Six Flags America’s Fright Fest this past weekend.

Principal Nate Newman principal of Suitland High School broke the bad news.

A high school principal in Prince George’s County is urging parents not to send their children to Six Flags America this weekend because of the threat of violence at Fright Fest.

“Don’t allow your children to go to Six Flags this weekend,” Nate Newman, principal of Suitland High School, said to parents in a text message. “Big gang fight planned. Retaliation from last incident.”

Last month, fights broke out inside the park and outside the gate during the opening night of the park’s Halloween-themed event, known as Fright Fest. At least three teens were injured, including a 15-year-old DuVal High School student who was placed in a medically induced coma after being punched outside the park. Witnesses described the scene as “chaos” and “mayhem” as frantic parents searched for their children.

Havilah Ross, a spokeswoman for Six Flags America, said in a statement that the park has stepped up safety and security measures, including increased surveillance throughout the park, in the parking lots and at a dedicated area for picking up and dropping off guests.

Prince George’s school officials said they were unaware of Newman’s message to the Suitland High community until Wednesday and would not send a similar message to the broader school community. Max Pugh, a school system spokesman, said Newman sent the message after hearing “chatter at the school.” >>> Read more Washington Post
