PASADENA, Md. (WBFF) - A second-grade student in Pasadena was taped to a chair by a substitute teacher Wednesday.
The incident happened at Lake Shore Elementary School, wrote principal Julie Little-McVearry in a letter to the school community.
"During regular classroom instruction, the teacher, a long-term substitute, remarked to a student that if he did not return to his seat, she would tape him to his chair. The student found the remark funny, and the teacher proceeded to do as she said she would," said Little-McVearry.
Police have been notified and the teacher is not in school today, "and will not be placed in any school until this matter is resolved," said the principal in the letter.
Little-McVearry said she "was shocked and appalled upon hearing about this incident," and the investigation is continuing.
