VICTORVILLE, Calif. (CBS) ― Click to enlarge1 of 1 Several mothers got into a verbal confrontation during a kindergarten graduation ceremony at Puesta Del Sol Elementary School.
Joyful graduation ceremonies are being held across Southern California, but one -- for kindergartners -- turned into a vicious brawl between parents.
Several mothers got into a verbal confrontation Wednesday during a kindergarten promotion ceremony at Puesta Del Sol Elementary School in Victorville.
The altercation, which took place in a field near the ceremony, turned physical, according to San Bernardino County sheriff's spokeswoman Karen Hunt.
Several men then jumped into the fray and the incident turned into a brawl. Hunt says arriving deputies didn't see any physical contact.
There were no arrests and no injuries reported.
"I saw a big group of grown-ups fighting," said Taylor Raymond, a sixth grade student at the school.
The school was placed on lockdown and students were ushered to separate classrooms as police tried to find the parents involved in the fight.
As a result of the brawl, the school's ceremony for sixth graders has been canceled.
"She worked hard this year, you know? And it's her day. And for them to take that away from her is hurtful," Raymond's mother said.
Fearful of more problems, the school's principal, Christa Erolin, sent a letter to parents that said "no parents will be allowed on campus for end of the year activities."

I was going to post this picture.
But after reading the story I guess it doesn’t apply.
Diversity is our strength!
IMHO Kindergarden graduations are just stupid. I mean really do they really need this much congratulations for learning what one learns in Kindergarden? Most would be happier with a trip to the Dairy Queen to celebrate.
I was going to make a wise-@$$ comment about Victorville’s ethnic make-up but you beat me to it. California has been lost - and soon, we taxpayers throughout the nation will get to pay for those free lunches.
What an annoying story. What were they fighting about? What were the points of dispute? Who started it? Lousy reporting.
’ “She worked hard this year, you know? And it’s her day. And for them to take that away from her is hurtful,” Raymond’s mother said. ‘
It’s been a long time since I (or even my kids) attended kindergarten, but I don’t remember it as being all that hard.
Shocking that you’d see this at a school filled with peace loving illegal immigrants. Guess they are just here to start the riots that Americans won’t start.
Those facts are all left out for this reason, any futher information would confirm it was all illegal aliens, the reason would, the points of conflict would and so on, there is no doubt about it
All questions which would get the reporter fired for answering.
Free School lunches for adults, too
half the country is on “free lunch”.
Then why bother to report it at all?
It was HER day (and everyone eases) because she’s SPECIAL (and so is everyone else).
I just went to my daughter’s 5th Grade Graduation Ceremony.
Back in my day, we had ONE graduation, and that was High School Graduation.
