Pine Island Rd.
On 10/04/2022, a 10th-grade student was participating in a JROTC exercise called a “bridge.” Rope placed between two trees, participants attach themselves with a harness and carabiner, wrap their legs around the rope, and pull themselves across with a hand-over-hand motion. During the exercise, the rope was released from one of the trees, causing the student to fall on her back from approximately five feet in the air. Coral Springs Fire Rescue responded to the scene and evaluated the student, determining that she had the “air knocked out of her.” She did not lose consciousness and answered fire rescue questions correctly. The student was transported to Broward Health Coral Springs for evaluation.
Deputies met with the 8th-grade assistant principal, who reported that a student was found to be in possession of an electronic nicotine delivery system (ENDS) device. The assistant principal advised that the student would receive discipline, based on the school’s disciplinary matrix, for bringing the prohibited item onto the school campus.
A Shooting/ Unlawful Discharge was reported on 10/05/2022. The homeowner reported shots fired. No evidence was found.
