RAEFORD, N.C. (AP) - Officials in a North Carolina school system say a teacher is recovering after she was beaten at school.

The Fayetteville Observer reports Hoke County Schools spokeswoman Jodie Bryant said the unidentified teacher at West Hoke Elementary School is doing well, but didn’t know if she was still in the hospital.

According to the Hoke County Sheriff’s Office, the teacher was seriously injured when a man entered the school after hours on Monday and hit her in the head, face and hands with what authorities believe was a metal object.

Bryant said on Wednesday that an extra deputy remains stationed at the campus, and staff is checking to ensure that the doors are locked and are watching for anything out of the ordinary. There have been no arrests so far.
