“I want to reassure you that we are aware of this situation and have dealt with it appropriately,” Maresh wrote. “As you know, we are focused on providing students with a safe and positive teaching and learning environment. Although the vast majority of our students follow school rules, when misbehavior occurs we deal with it quickly. In addition, we work directly with the parents of the students who are involved in a situation.”
Because of the social media postings, Maresh said he’s received a number of calls and wanted to reassure the community that the situation is being handled.
The vast majority of Facebook posts questioned the teacher's whereabouts.
“Kids should go to school to learn and not have to worry about other kids who don’t value education or respect others. Where was the teacher in this situation?” read one post.
"This is another example of schools/teachers not doing anything in their power to protect this child from a bully. For every cause there's an effect and for every effect there's a cause. Do schools really want to stop bullying or are they just going to summit another letter to the news says they are investing this incident and get nothing done," read another post.
