The students, who attend Greece Athena Middle School, call her names and even threaten her life. School District officials are trying to identify the students involved. "We do not tolerate harassment of staff or students," said Dr. Deb Hoeft, Greece Central School District. Officials have activated its Bullying Response and Prevention Team.
The Greece Police Department is exploring the possibility of filing charges. However, because the students are juveniles they would appear in family court. Captain Steve Chatterton says they are also worried about the safety of the students involved. People have been posting their names and addresses online. "There are people showing up here angry. We understand that. Give us time to look into the investigation," said Chatterton. "Please don't jump to conclusions. These are 13 and 12-year-old kids." The District has received angry emails from people around the world including Australia. Klein has been receiving positive messages on Facebook and flowers from strangers. She hopes the children involved learn a lesson. Klein said, "I hope you never do it again to anybody else."
