This comes the same week New Britain High School officials sent students home for remote learning due to vandalism and fighting.

The bathroom vandalism is part of a social media trend on TikTok. School officials say all the fighting is because most students have not been in school for the last year and a half, and they’re having trouble adjusting.

School officials decided to do three days of remote, at-home learning, then re-start school next week. After some major backlash Wednesday, a change came later in the day. Students returned to in-person classes Thursday after one day learning remotely.
