Tapp Middle Principal Jerry Wright Dority and a counselor, Yatta Lynnette Collins, were arrested Thursday for allegedly failing to report a student's abuse claims to authorities, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
The arrests stem from a possible case of child molestation that was known but not reported, the AJC says. The two are on administrative leave.
Dority, a 50-year-old Hiram resident, made her $1,000 bond the day of the arrest, jail records show. Collins, 40, of Kennesaw, also made a $1,000 bond Thursday.
Mugshots were not available on the online booking reports.
Jeanne Walker, who comes from Sprayberry High as a curriculum assistant principal, has taken over as acting principal at Tapp. Both Dority and Collins have been removed from the staff listing on Tapp's website.
The arrests came the same day as school employees were acting with extra caution because of a possibly threatening message written on a bathroom wall.
