Nashville - Rumors are flying in a South Georgia town after two fights the local high school.

Teachers at Berrien High School in Nashville had to discipline several students for fighting Wednesday.

And, as the school day came to a close, many parents talked about lock downs, weapons on campus, and race riots.

Superintendent Bobby Griffin wants to assure all parents the school is safe, and the fighting is an isolated incident.  "We haven't had many fights in our school, but it does happen when you have kids together once in a while. But our administration dealt with it and somehow it got blown out of proportion," Griffin says.

As an added precaution, Griffin says he will spend more time in the high school for the rest of the week and welcomes any calls from parents concerned over recent rumors.
