On 26 Apr 10 a bus driver for the Fort Frye School District reported an eleven year old passenger hit and kicked her when she attempted to re move a camera from the student’s backpack. The bus driver stated the juvenile disrupted her driving by using the flash on the camera and also that the juvenile refused to exit the bus when asked. Citing the bus driver’s mishandling of a situation with a student with behavioral problems, school officials elected not to pursue charges against the juvenile. However, the juvenile is slated to receive a suspension as a result of the incident. The driver will receive additional training on how to handle students with behavioral problems (1293).

On 26 Apr 10 a teacher at Frontier High School reported two students approached her while she was supervising the cafeteria and informed her that they witnessed an exchange of money for pills. Along with the acting principal, the teacher located the students involved and questioned them. The seventeen year old student who sold the pill stated he found the Vicodin pill the previous evening while cleaning a relative’s vehicle and that he brought the pill to school with the intention of selling it. The eighteen year old purchaser of the pill also admitted being involved in the transaction and said after he purchased the pill for $4 he gave half of it to a friend and swallowed the other half. Questioned about the pill given to him, the other student replied that he had no intention of ingesting the pill. Investigating this case, Deputy Sheriff Mayle anticipates filing charges against the two students involved in the transaction after she receives lab tests on the recovered pill.
