Parents began commenting with growing concern on Facebook after a local page said Rockmart police were dispatched to the school at 9:20 a.m.
Williams said one officer, the school resource officer, was sent to the school to handle a disgruntled parent. There was never any danger to students, he said.
“Sometimes we’re forced to have a S.R.O. intervene,” he said. “Everything is fine.”
Students are actually in a very quiet environment today because it is Criterion- Referenced Competence Test (CRCT) day for middle school students, he said.
