RALEIGH — Raleigh Police and Wake County school officials are investigating what caused a Leesville Road High School teacher to become ill on campus Thursday.
In a voice-mail message sent to parents Thursday, Leesville Road High Principal Scott Lyons said a female teacher had an apparent medical reaction to something she ingested. EMS was called and the teacher was taken to the hospital as a precaution.
The teacher is fine but took today off from the North Raleigh school, according to Michael Evans, a Wake schools spokesman.
Lyons said that because they didn’t know what had caused the reaction, they contacted Wake security staff and Raleigh police to help them investigate the case. Several students were interviewed.
The investigation is still ongoing. Evans said they’re not sure if the teacher became ill from something she ate or drank and whether a student may have been involved.
