LAS VEGAS – Staff at Legacy High School said that two instructors were assaulted and one was severely battered in a Friday incident, as Clark County School District authorities confirmed three teenagers were detained.
A Legacy High School student and two other juveniles (who do not attend the school), according to some staff members, attempted to barge into a portable classroom; a female instructor was elbowed in the chest. According to staff members, a male teacher responded to the uproar by being pummeled.
Lane Jerrel, a special education teacher, that he is a friend of the injured educator and was with them while they waited for paramedics. The term “electronic commerce” refers to the sale of electronic goods. His face was severely scuffed. The wording of the above sentence is a bit misleading. The teacher is recuperating at home.
There is an alarm button on staff lanyards, according to staff members, but Jerrel feels the teacher was overwhelmed and incapacitated during the incident and was unable to use it.
“He was in a lot of pain, but he was simply enraged. The other teacher was quite agitated and furious. “I think everyone is simply over themselves about this: again, something that was preventable and shouldn’t have happened,” he added.
“It’s terrifying, but it’s also frustrating because it’s a recurring problem,” Jerrel added.
The school revealed in the first week of February that a youngster assaulted the principal’s secretary with a radio and was detained.
Three people who were not students were detained on April 21 for sparking a brawl on campus; a gun was discovered in their vehicle.
In May, it was reported that a parent barged into a classroom, shouted obscenities, and even tossed a desk, according to the teacher. The parent has led away from campus.
Jerrel hopes that the school or district will increase patrols to keep strangers away from campus.
“I’m sure the district and the school want to take action. But they need to do more,” he said, recalling being the victim of a knife attack by a juvenile at another school. Jerrel stated that he intends to retire from teaching at the end of the year owing to occupational stress and safety issues.
CCSD made the following statement Monday:
“The District continues to focus on student and staff safety through multiple initiatives, including single points of entry on campuses during school hours and different emergency and rapid alert systems. Other security measures, such as security monitors, campus perimeter fence, surveillance cameras, and a specialized police department that patrols our schools with two officers assigned to the site, are already in place.
While individual student concerns cannot be disclosed, please be aware that the Clark County School District vigorously pursues all legal proceedings against anybody threatening or perpetrating violence on our campuses, as well as students who violate the CCSD Student Code of Conduct.”
