Suicide Attempt In Class

Substitute teacher threatens suicide in class, officials say

A veteran substitute teacher reportedly pulled out a small kitchen knife this morning at Washington High School and expressed feelings of suicide to three students, district official said.

The students, who had remained in the room after second period, immediately told school administrators, said district spokeswoman Gentle Blythe.

The female substitute was removed from the classroom without incident and police were called, Blythe said.

A police spokesman said the woman was taken into custody on an involuntary psychiatric hold and transported to San Francisco General Hospital, where she was undergoing a psychiatric evaluation.
