Lawyers for families at heart of Arlington Heights school nurse ‘misuse’ of meds case want principal on leave

Chicago Tribune
May 2, 2024

The law firm retained by several families of children at the center of a probe into an Arlington Heights school nurse’s alleged ”misuse” of the kids’ medications is calling for the principal to be removed, pending the outcome of the investigation.

The nurse is already on leave, according to Arlington Heights School District 25 officials. The health professional is not identified because they are not, to date, charged with a crime.

“We believe what happened at Westgate Elementary is a reckless endangerment of the children’s physical and emotional health as well as their social and educational development,” attorneys from the Chicago-based personal injury law firm of Romanucci and Blandin stated in a news release Wednesday. “We are calling for Westgate Elementary School Principal Ann Buch to be placed on administrative leave until all of the facts come out.”
