BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Police say a 16-year-old Boston Public Schools student will face serious charges after she allegedly attacked her school's principal in Dorchester on Wednesday.
The attack sent Principal Tricia Lampron to the hospital. The teen is being charged with assault and battery on a person over 60, assault and battery causing serious injury and two counts of battery on a public employee.
The incident happened around 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday afternoon at the Henderson Inclusion School. Police say the 16-year-old student attacked Lampron and another staff member.
The attack left Lampron unconscious and with injuries described as serious. The teen was arrested at the school and will appear in Dorchester Juvenile Court.
Meanwhile, classes have been canceled Thursday for grades 9-12 on the school's upper campus.
Boston Public Schools Superintendent Brenda Cassellius called the attack disturbing and unacceptable.
At this time, it is unknown what led to the attack, but it was reportedly witnesses by other students and parents. A crisis and safety team will be on campus Friday.
