Dear First Coast High School Parents and Guardians,
This is principal Simmons calling to inform you of a situation on our campus regarding alleged inappropriate conduct of one of our teachers. A video is circulating that appears to show a teacher pulling the hair of a student.
The school district’s professional standards division is conducting an investigation and the department of children and families has also been contacted. Because this is under investigation, I cannot say more, but I do want you to know that the teacher has been reassigned from the classroom pending the outcome of the investigation.
First Coast High School and Duval County Public Schools have very high standards for professional conduct, and we take all such matters very seriously.
Again, I just wanted you to be aware. Have a great rest of your evening and I look forward to seeing your students in school tomorrow.
