Wellesley Middle School interim principal Jamie Chisum issued the following statement Friday:
I wanted to write you this morning and report that all is well with our 6th grade English Teacher Keriann McLaughlin. Keriann is about 15 weeks pregnant and she fainted yesterday afternoon and had to be taken to Newton Wellesley Hospital to be checked out. She was seen and released last night. She is home today recovering, but all is well with her and the baby. The ambulance was out front right at release time yesterday so a lot of students saw her being taken away. I wanted to let you all know in case your children had any questions at home. The teachers from Keriann’s house addressed their students specifically this morning as well.
