On April 21. 2022, School Resource Officers (SROs) responded to Glenellen Elementary School, 825 Needmore Road, Clarksville, TN, to investigate a physical assault against Mrs. Emily Clark, the school’s principal. The investigation included a review of the school surveillance cameras which identified the suspect as, Tandrea Laquise Sanders of Clarksville.
Sanders is now free on a $5,000 bond, charged with assault. Prior to her arrest, Sheriff’s Office officials spent the night looking for Sanders.
Sheriff Fuson stated, “We as parents and community members have absolutely had enough. Our SRO’s are working tirelessly to maintain safety on our school campuses for students and school staff. Dealing with the behavioral issues of an adolescent student is challenging enough, now we have a parent who feels that they can come to a school campus and act in this manner. This is not the first time that this has occurred. Well, I can tell you that circumstances like this will not be tolerated. I spoke with District Attorney Nash this morning about this incident and will ensure that Sanders is prosecuted to the fullest extent possible. A message needs to and will be sent. The example starts here with Sanders and this incident”.
