Case officials contacted Park officials on Tuesday to alert them that several Case students were on their way to Park to fight Park students.
Several Racine Police officers went to the Park fieldhouse and spotted several students, including Silva and Howland-Salinas. After a school official told the students to report to his office, Silva and Howland-Salinas ran south on Valley Drive and east on 13th Street.
An officer caught up to them and apprehended them.
Howland-Salinas and Silva made initial court appearances Wednesday, during which signature bonds were set at $300. As part of their bond conditions, they are not allowed to have contact with Case High School, records show.
