An incident involving a middle school student is being investigated by Pennsylvania State Police after the child hit a teacher with a closed fist.
The student struck a male teacher, 26 of Mechanicsburg at Fishing Creek Middle School in West Hanover Township on Monday, as stated in a release from state police in Harrisburg.
The middle school is owned by Yellow Breeches Educational Center, a private academic licensed by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
“Our mission is to provide a quality, comprehensive, life-altering special education program for secondary school-aged students, identified with emotional support needs, who are at risk to fail in the traditional academic setting,” according to the school’s website.
The school has not commented on this incident but the investigation by state police is on-going.
