MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (AP) Minneapolis South High School will be in session today, the day after police used chemical spray to break up a brawl involving hundreds of students.

The school says it is implementing a safety plan "to ensure that there is support for a safe learning environment."

Additional counselors and support staff also will be on hand.

The school will remain on lockdown today. Students will have to stay in their classrooms during class and access to the building will be limited. But the school will operate on a normal schedule.

Police say up to 300 students fought after a food fight got out of control Thursday.

Three students and a staffer were taken to hospitals with minor injuries. No one was arrested but police will study surveillance video for possible charges.
