At least two McIntosh County school officials reported to work Friday.
This comes after the board voted at a meeting Thursday night to let them keep their jobs despite being arrested for failing to report child abuse.
Unlike most schools in the area, McIntosh students did have class Friday. WTOC confirmed the superintendent and assistant superintendent did go back to work.
Police had arrested and charged Superintendent Tina Kirby and Assistant Superintendent Larry Day with failing to report child abuse. McIntosh Academy Principal Terrance Haywood was additionally charged with making false statements to state officials, which is a felony.
When WTOC called McIntosh Academy, they would not answer any questions including whether Haywood was back in school. The receptionist said "I'm not at liberty to comment".
School officials are accused of failing to report 41-year-old teacher Lori Quigley who was accused of having sex with two students older than 16.
One school board member said he believes the board members are innocent until proven guilty.
The fact remains that everything is still under investigation and so until those investigators complete the investigation we should not rush to judgment which is what some people a segment of the population is doing.
The woman at the center of this scandal Quigley had taught high school math at McIntosh Academy since 2005. She resigned from her job.
