Police in Kansas, Oklahoma say it will be up to the district attorney's office whether students involved in a fight will face legal consequences. The fight was between two girls on Monday, September 10 and resulted in injuries to teachers, according to the department's Facebook post.

Kansas Public School Principal Phil Isom said threats on social media began after the fight, leading to such low student attendance that they canceled school on Friday. The threats were not considered credible, according to police. 

In an update, Kansas police said they have turned probable cause affidavits on the students who fought over to the district attorney's office.

"It will be up to them to decide if charges will be filed," the post states. "Conduct of putting other students in harm's way will not be tolerated by the School or the Police Department."

The names of the students involved have not been released as they are juveniles.
