A Southington school employee accused of fighting with another staff member appeared in court on Monday.

Last month, police said 29-year-old Melinda Fisher punched, kicked and threw coffee on her supervisor during a discussion about her punctuality.

The fight happened at the South End Elementary School, and a number of students were present when this happened.

Police said when the victim fell to the ground, Fisher allegedly began kicking her and tried to bang the victim's head against a wall.

Fisher has been charged with assault and breach of peace, and was asked to have no contact with the victim. She also isn't allowed to enter school property unless invited.

Southington's school superintendent said it is not the district's practice "to comment on personnel matters."

Fisher was a district wide technology assistant.

She is due back in court on June 3.
