The Rest of the Story: Buffalo Ridge Rumor

A Buffalo Ridge Elementary teacher recently resigned in the middle of the school year. There have been several inquiries from parents, as well as rumors on social media about the treatment of this employee on his last day.

Posts on social media have falsely claimed that law enforcement and/or armed District security escorted the teacher and two children from Buffalo Ridge.

Below is the school surveillance video of the teacher and his two children leaving the building unescorted.

The District has obscured the faces of students to protect their identities.
