Some students at Valley High School are planning to protest outside of campus on Wednesday afternoon.

The rally is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. after dismissal on the eastern side of the property, according to social media posts.

Students plan to rally peacefully around issues shared in an online petition that started on Sunday and has gathered more than 300 signatures.

The virtual document on is called “Make a Difference Protect Valley High School”. The petition is intended to go to the Nevada State Senate and Principal Kimberly Perry-Carter.

The start of the petition comes a few days after a brawl between asubstitute teacher and a student in a hallway.

Clark County School District Police arrested and bookedRe’Kwon Smith, 27, into the Clark County Detention Center on a felony account of battery with substantial bodily harm.

Las Vegas Justice Court records show he is also facing misdemeanor charges of threat to a student causing fear, interference with a student attending school, and assault on school property.

Cell phone video shared on social media shows a man and a male student in a brawl. A man appears to punch the student several times and slap the student across the face once he is on the ground.

Sources tell News 3 it started after the student used racial slurs towards Smith.

News 3 reached out to CCSD about the petition but did not receive an immediate response.
