A flood of more than 300 fighting students poured out of Proviso East High School on their last day of school May 31 and carried into the streets of Maywood for several hours, police said.

At least 10 students were arrested, including a girl allegedly using two chef’s knives after being beaten down by other students, and the fight required more than 40 officers from neighboring agencies including Oak Park, Forest Park, Westchester, Bellwood and Broadview, according to the Forest Park Review.

Three students were taken to Loyola Medical Center with minor injuries, including one girl who was struck over the eye with a lock, the Review reported.
