Medical emergency worries some parents at Twin Oaks

Staff Reports

Several phone calls to the Journal’s offices, made by concerned parents, reported a situation at Twin Oaks Elementary School in Lee County.  The callers claimed that there was some kind of situation with a fifth grade teacher.  One caller described it as the teacher having “lost it”.  The halls were reportedly cleared and the teacher was escorted from the building.

However, Twin Oaks principal Dr. Jason Miller says that’s not quite the case.  In an email responding to the Journal’s questions as to what happened, Dr. Miller said, “A teacher had medical situation and had to leave by ambulance. There were no security measures taken. We just asked the halls to be clear when the paramedics were ready to transport. All of our students are fine and there is or never was a danger to their safety.”

It appears that excited students may have blown the situation out of proportion and parents were needlessly concerned.  This comes on the same day of a rumor circulating Facebook that a man had stolen an AK-47 and was shooting up parts of East Albany.  Some observers are wondering if the excitability had anything to do with the anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks yesterday.

We have not received word of the status of the teacher.
