Hephzibah High student punches teacher in face at powder puff football game

A Hephzibah High School student punched a teacher in the face at a powder puff football game Oct. 26 after the teacher tried to break up a fight between the girl and another student, according to Richmond County School System tribunal findings recently made public.

The girl was assigned to the Tubman Education Center Alternative Program until she graduates. The panel showed leniency because the student is a senior on track to graduate and has not had disciplinary issues.

The following are findings from tribunals held Nov. 5, 8, 13 and 16. The students were given the option to attend the alternative program in lieu of long-term suspension.

• Two Hephzibah High School students threw rocks and dropped a cement block on a vehicle on campus Oct. 26, causing $2,800 in damage. One student was assigned to the alternative program for the rest of the first semester of this year while the other was assigned there for the rest of the year. The tribunal panel also determined restitution should be made as allowed by law.

• A Hephzibah High School student cut class, went to the lunchroom and attacked a student Oct. 26. The student was assigned to the alternative program for the rest of the school year.

• A Cross Creek High School student got into an altercation with another student in a classroom Oct. 25, used vulgar words and threatened to hit the student. The next day the boy hit the other student in the face and had to be removed from class. While being escorted to the office by a teacher, the student “kicked his feet and kicked another teacher, causing her to fall to the floor.” The teacher who fell suffered injuries. The student was assigned to the alternative program for the rest of the year.

• A Glenn Hills High School student entered a classroom where he was not assigned and refused to leave Oct. 29. He began fighting with a second student, and a teacher was hit during the altercation. The two students were assigned to the alternative program for the rest of the school year.

• A Sego Middle School pupil was called to the office Oct. 25 but instead of reporting to the office, he went to the cafeteria where he hit another pupil in the side of the head. While in the hallway, the pupil elbowed a teacher in the side, used profanity and kept trying to get back to the pupil he had hit. The pupil was assigned to the alternative program for the rest of the school year.

• A Langford Middle School pupil took a female pupil’s candy on the school bus, hit a pupil who took the candy back and hit another pupil who tried to address the incident Nov. 2. The pupil was assigned to the alternative program for the rest of the school year.

He was assigned to the alternative program for the rest of the school year while the second pupil in the verbal and physical altercation was assigned 10 days of in-school suspension.

• A Sego Middle School pupil was in possession of two knives Oct. 31. The student was assigned to the alterative program for the rest of the year.
