Initial reports from Lake Central students indicated woman came to school in bra, panties, robe Inappropriately dressed teacher taken to hospital

ST. JOHN | A Lake Central High School science teacher came to school Wednesday dressed inappropriately and appeared confused, prompting school officials to call an ambulance and the police.

Lake Central Superintendent Gerald Chabot said school starts at 7:15 a.m., and the incident was reported to the office very early by teachers and students.

Initial reports from students who took cell phone pictures indicated the teacher came to school in a bra, panties and robe. Chabot declined to confirm that, simply saying she was dressed inappropriately.

"We went into the classroom to see what was happening and it was very evident there was some sort of medical condition she was under going," Chabot said. "There were key pieces of clothing missing. She was dressed inappropriately. I can't speculate on what might have been going on. There was a medical, behavioral issue in terms of speech and behavior. It could have been due to a prescription or a number of other things. The hospital is evaluating."

School officials called an ambulance and police. The teacher, whose name was not released, was taken to St. Margaret Mercy Healthcare Centers about 9 a.m. Chabot said the teacher was under observation for most of Wednesday. He said he did not know if she had been released.

St. John Police Chief Fred Frego said police responded to the call at 7:54 a.m. Wednesday at Lake Central in reference to a 10th-grade teacher acting strangely. She was scantily clad and alone in a classroom when police arrived, he said.

Chabot said the woman is a first-year teacher. He said calls were made to her fiance, who came to assist her. Although police would not release her name, Frego said she has a Highland address.

Chabot said school was out for students Thursday and out for teachers today.

He said the school will not take any action at this point against the teacher because the incident is being viewed as a "medical distress situation" unless they learn something different later from the police and medical report.

Police have not arrested or filed charges against the woman, Frego said.

That is OUTRAGEOUS!!!

7:15 a.m. For school kids? No decent person is getting up at the crack of dawn to do anything.

People who wake up early and expect the rest of the world to cater to them are destroying the universe.

They should be rounded up and exterminated, along with people who put mustard on hamburgers.

Yeah, that was confusing. It happened on Wednesday when the students were there.

They are missing critical information. “First year teacher” makes me think she was young. “. . . reported to the office very early by . . . students” suggests otherwise.

The incident was Wednsday. School was out on Thursday. So it was the last day of school. Give the students something to talk about all summer.

I suspect drugs, but not necessarily illegal ones. Could be a really bad reaction/side effect of a prescription.

I know I'm having a bit more of a side effect of the pain medication, Tramadol, that I'm taking for knee pain, than seems usual according to what I read. (But that's why I don't take the first dose of the day unil *after* I get to the office.)

And maybe she has a brain tumor. Inaapropriate behavior has been associated with some tumors and some early dementia.

It may not be as funny as it sounds.

Tramadol does some screwy stuff to me. First it knocks me out for a short period then makes me feel like I’m wired on speed or something.

Tumors are NEVER funny... even when Arnold says it.

You are right though, never thought about that.

Ouch. I like mustard on hamburgers — though I think people that would abuse a fine burger with mayonnaise should be strung up.

Yes, especially when mixed with alcohol. She could very easily have been sleepwalking.

My niece teaches in that area and they are an hour ahead of neighboring areas. She says it is terrible having to get up so early and then when possible weather conditions they have an hour delay for school to begin. In that case each one is responsible to let others know of the delay. It is crazy!
