In the first incident, a dispute between two boys unfolded within a bathroom stall. A teacher, who was overseeing the lunchroom, intervened to resolve the conflict. Tragically, during the intervention, the teacher accidentally struck her head against the wall.


Less than 24 hours later, another separate incident took place in the cafeteria involving a male and female student. This altercation prompted another teacher to intervene and defuse the situation. However, during the intervention, the teacher was inadvertently struck in the head by a stray elbow.


As a result of these incidents, one teacher suffered a bruise or possibly a fracture to her orbital bone. Both occurrences are deeply concerning. In response, all students involved will face superintendent suspension.


Although both teachers have yet to return to school, they are currently receiving pay while they recover from their injuries.
