EDINBURG, Texas (ValleyCentral) — An Edinburg Consolidated Independent School District employee was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance.
Sally Blixt, a 7th grade social studies teacher at Harwell Middle School, is also charged with two counts of abandon/endanger child imminent danger bodily injury.
According to Lisa Ayala, the school district spokeswoman, security cameras on campus showed a small purse fall as Blixt walked in the hallway.
“The safety of our students is our top priority, we want our parents and community to know that no students were injured, and with the aid of security cameras we were able to pinpoint who the teacher was within an hour of the incident,” said school superintendent Dr. Mario Salinas.
Blixt was arrested Thursday afternoon and then arraigned. Her bond was set at $95,000. Jail records show she remains behind bars.
She resigned shortly after her arrest.
