BEDFORD, Ohio — Editor's note: the video in the player above is from a previous story.

Following an outbreak of violent activities, Bedford High School has decided to extend remote learning for students into next week.

The Bedford City School District told WKYC that students will learn remotely through Monday, Nov. 1. Bedford High School does not have classes on Tuesday, Nov. 2, due to a professional development day for teachers. The first day back in the classroom for students will be Wednesday, Nov. 3.

"The decision to move the high school to virtual learning temporarily was not made lightly, but we must make the safety and security of our students and staff a top priority," the administration said in a statement.

While students continue to learn at home, the Bedford City School District is taking measures to prevent future fights and violence by making safety protocol upgrades.

The school is currently in the process of getting new equipment installed as well as getting staff in place according to school officials.

At the beginning of the week, officials did not specify the exact events that occurred, but they stated that “several students” are currently facing disciplinary actions.
