Pinellas teachers step up to help their own
More than two dozen teachers from four Pinellas elementary schools are working at Forest Lakes Elementary in Oldsmar today so their peers there can attend the funeral for the police officers killed in St. Petersburg. Forest Lakes kindergarten teacher Lorraine Yaslowitz is the wife of fallen officer Jeffrey A. Yaslowitz.
The teachers "looked at this in the same way the police department looked at it ... this is one of our own," Kathleen Young, the principal at Highland Lakes Elementary, which sent nine teachers to Forest Lakes, told The Gradebook. Story here.
