Jeff. Parish administrator on leave after grabbing student by hair
METAIRIE (WVUE) - Jefferson Parish Public School officials say a John Q. Adams Middle School administrator is on leave after an incident with a student on Tuesday (Aug. 23).
The mother of the student posted a photo on Facebook showing an adult grabbing her daughter by the hair.
Jefferson Parish Schools Chief of Staff Gabrielle Misfeldt said she could not confirm the identity of the school administrator, “as it is a personnel matter.” The student’s mother says the employee’s name is Melissa Sallinger.
Sallinger could face disciplinary measures after the conclusion of an investigation into the incident.
The student’s mother did not want to go on camera for an interview, but says her daughter was in an argument with a classmate when the administrator came over and grabbed her by the hair.
