PETERSBURG, VA (WWBT) -

School officials say Petersburg High School will have "additional support" on Friday following fights on Thursday. 

"Some students were involved in physical altercations at school today," the school system posted on Facebook on Thursday night. "... The behavior of the students involved in physical altercations is unacceptable. Those students now face school disciplinary action."

The school system did not say how many students were involved in the fights.

"We encourage all parents to talk with their children to discuss the serious consequences that can arise when students violate the school system’s standards of student conduct," school officials said.
