MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minneapolis School District says it won’t tolerate violence, after four incidents of students at alternative schools assaulting staff members in recent months.

Police say a 14-year-old boy was arrested Thursday in the assault of a female teacher at Harrison Education Center.

The Star Tribune reports (strib.mn/1ZQJCzK) two other assaults occurred at Harrison, which serves students with behavioral and emotional needs.

On Dec. 7, Harrison Principal Monica Fabre was assaulted by a 17-year-old girl, who was arrested. Fabre says she’s dealing with a concussion and hopes to return to work soon. Police say that the next day, an 18-year-old male student was arrested for allegedly assaulting a 29-year-old male paraprofessional.

The fourth assault happened in November at River Bend, a K-8 school. A 13-year-old girl was arrested for assaulting a female teacher.
