Northwestern Middle school principal’s controversial email to City Councilman

Local News

A Facebook post was intended to call out Zachary’s Police Department. The man who posted it said, it was meant to shed light on how the department handles social media hashtags, when talking about alleged crimes.

“If you’re not going to say nothing about this teacher, don’t say nothing about nobody else. I didn’t agree with it, that’s the only point I was trying to make. Just stop making these hash tags.”

Zachary City Councilman, Leal Montgomery said, his post was taken out of context, leading to an email from Northwestern Middle School’s principal.

“You email me in a condescending way as to, stay in your place, be quiet don’t speak on this issue.”

Montgomery said, the email was off topic in reference to his initial post. He said, it highlights information Zachary PD and school district refused to confirm. The email from Northwestern Middle School Principal, Debby Brian said

Your post of two days ago is disgraceful. My faculty, students, and staff have had to deal with allegations, rumors, and publicity surrounding events from last school year.

“You trying to protect something and you’re not protecting the kids.”

The email also revealed, the teacher at the center of the allegations has reportedly been at the school for ten years. 

“I am on the phone with this child’s parent. This family is hurting, this family has been abused, they feel neglected they feel all alone and then you email me that” said Montgomery.

He said, although his post was not made to cause controversy. He’s content with knowing people are now learning about what happened, hoping the school district can correct the alleged wrong-doings.

“Make it right. I don’t know how you can make it right but make it right. Do your best to make it right. Make it right with these families, make it right with these kids.”
