CALEXICO — The Police Department here is investigating whether a fourth-grade teacher at Dool Elementary School pulled a knife out during class in a threatening manner.
If she did she could face criminal charges.
Some parents of Dool students said the teacher should not be in the classroom while she is under investigation.
They said the Calexico Unified School District and Dool Elementary are not doing enough to protect children from a teacher they don't trust.
Calexico police Sgt. Armando Marquez said the investigation is not yet complete.
The principal at Dool, Lilliana Damin, would not comment on the teacher under suspicion.
She referred all questions to Roberto Moreno, superintendent of the Calexico Unified School District.
Moreno would not comment on specifics of the case or even acknowledge there is such a case.
A parent, who declined to be identified, said the incident happened three weeks ago.
The parent was concerned because there seemingly has been no action taken against the teacher.
