Parent removed by police from Pisgah campus
A mother upset about an incident on the school bus powered her way past the front office to confront an assistant principal in the cafeteria early Wednesday afternoon.
Her disruptive behavior, along with an unwillingness to leave, resulted in her forcible removal from the school.
Associate Superintendent Bill Nolte said a mother came to Pisgah to discuss an incident involving her child. When told that testing was taking place, and that the principal was with students in the cafeteria, Stephanie Ramsey refused to wait in the office, and instead headed directly to the cafeteria.
The school is currently operating under a testing schedule, and there were more students than usual in the cafeteria, said Principal Greg Bailey.
But the school resource officer, Scott Sluder, intercepted her immediately, he said.
"It gets our attention when any adult comes in without a visitor's pass," he said.
She then began to cause a scene.
“Instead of waiting, and instead of talking quietly, she became disruptive and loud very quickly,” Nolte said. “When she was asked to calm down or leave, she would not.”
The Canton Police Department responded to the call and escorted her off the campus. Charges are pending in the incident.
