Kim Hoke, of the Chapel Hill School System, said the school was having a spring festival Wednesday afternoon when a fight broke out involving three students. One of the students went into seizure and one suffered minor injuries. Both are being treated at UNC Hospitals. The third student was released to his parent.

At 3 p.m., all school activities had ceased at Chapel Hill High to maintain the safety of all students.

School dismissed at its regular time, 3:30 p.m.
