The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office has charged a Baker School teacher with child neglect.

57-year old Peggy Rambosk of Pensacola was arrested Thursday and booked at the Escambia County Jail.

OCSO investigators say Rambosk had a series of text conversations between January 30th and February 2nd with a student who made references to killing herself and said she had already tried twice. On February 2nd the student relayed to Rombosk she had then taken alot of pills while at school and was overdosing. Rambosk did not render aid but instead connected with the student’s sister. The student was taken to an area hospital by Okaloosa EMS after OCSO School Resource Officers learned of the incident and called for medical assistance.

Investigators say Rambosk never contacted law enforcement, the Abuse Hotline of the Department of Children and Families, medical services, school staff, or the child’s mother.

She did tell the student to delete their text conversations.

Additionally here is a statement from the Okaloosa County School District:

A Baker School teacher, Peggy Rambosk, was arrested by authorities on Friday, March 8, following an investigation into alleged misconduct for child neglect without great bodily harm. District staff was notified of the investigation and immediately placed Rambosk on administrative leave pending further action. Details of the alleged misconduct are provided in the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office release.

“Our top priority is the safety and well-being of our students, and failing to ensure a student’s safety is unacceptable,” stated Superintendent Marcus Chambers. “District employees are trained annually on Florida’s mandatory reporting laws, and immediate action must be taken. We are blessed to have highly effective educators committed to making our student experiences exceptional and working hard to create a safe, healthy, and conducive learning environment. We deeply appreciate the professionalism of the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office and their efforts in this case.”
