THIS WAS not the first bul­ly­ing bru­tal­ity at the Bronx Wildlife school build­ing.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors are study­ing a video (be­low) from May in which a stu­dent punches an­other in a school bath­room, ac­cord­ing to Schools Chan­cel­lor Car­men Far­iña.

“I have in­structed my team to con­duct a thor­ough in­ves­ti­ga­tion on all is­sues, and this is un­der­way,” Far­iña said Thurs­day.

The 39-sec­ond cell phone clip was ap­par­ently shot at the build­ing shared by Pub­lic School 67 and the high school in­volves two sixth-graders, with one cow­er­ing in a cor­ner be­fore tak­ing a punch to the head from a class­mate.

“That could’ve been my child,” said mom Erika Estrella, 23, whose son is a PS 67 sec­ond-grader.

“My child gets bul­lied all the time in here.”

Matthew McCree (left) was killed in the at­tack. Fel­low stu­dent Ari­ane Laboy (right), who also was stabbed, is still in crit­i­cal con­di­tion. Kyle Vic­tor (far right) McCree’s step­fa­ther, said 15-year-old wasn’t the bully peo­ple say he was.
