ELMIRA, N.Y. (WETM) – Police were called to Ernie Davis Academy Thursday morning after a parent allegedly caused a disturbance when coming to pick up their child.
The Chemung County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that there was a dispute between two students, resulting in one of them being suspended. The parent was seen yelling and causing a disturbance when they came to pick up the student, according to police and a reporter at the school.
Reports of the police presence first came into 18 News around 10:30 a.m. on November 18. Elmira Police said the school resource officer called for backup, but ultimately the EPD wasn’t needed as the SRO got the situation under control.
