Parents attack elementary school principal at family fun day

Posted: Updated:

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Police say the parents of a Philadelphia elementary school boy attacked a vice principal and principal during family fun day after they were told they had to sign the child out in the office.

The alleged assaults Wednesday at Robert B. Pollock Elementary School happened in front of the schoolchildren.

Officials say the two tried to remove their son directly from outside.

Police say 37-year-old Nicole Myers then punched the vice principal. They say she then punched the principal and the two fell on the ground. Police say that's when the child's father punched the principal in the head multiple times.

Myers is facing charges including aggravated assault. No attorney information is available.

Police are still seeking the father.

The district says such behavior cannot be tolerated and they are cooperating with police.
