SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — A Santa Clara County court has ordered a local school trustee to stay away from his son's school and the school's principal.
The San Jose Mercury News says (http://bit.ly/1tkmCXu ) Peterson Middle School Principal Susan Harris obtained a temporary restraining order against Santa Clara Unified School District board member Christopher Stampolis.
Harris obtained the order on September 24. Her application alleges Stampolis was aggressive, argumentative and made "violent gun-like hand gestures" when she confronted him in August about repeatedly being late to pick up his 7th-grader.
Stampolis tells the newspaper he was late a few times picking up his son, but insists he was polite to teachers and administrators. He has been on the Santa Clara school board for two years.
A school district investigator is looking into the principal's allegations.
