Stockton School Principal Attacked By Angry Parent

STOCKTON (CBS13) – A principal at a Stockton elementary school was taken to the hospital after being attacked by an angry parent Monday morning, according to school district officials.

Fillmore Elementary Principal Evangelina Ramos was punched twice by a woman who was apparently angry over the school’s dress code, according to Stockton Unified Assistant Superintendent Dan Wright.

“Out of nowhere, she struck her a couple of times in the face,” Wright said. “She was immediately separated by a couple of staff members.”

Wright said Principal Ramos told the mother her third grade child’s T-shirt with skulls on it was not appropriate for the school. The child was told to change shirts or turn the shirt inside out in order to return to class.

As Ramos and the child’s mother discussed the issue around 9:30 a.m., the woman apparently punched Ramos and was then restrained by two other adults. However, she was able to free herself and punch the principal again and then fled the campus.

Ramos, who is in her first year as principal at the school, was taken to Dameron Hospital. She’s expected to be fine.

School district police later arrested 29-year-old Pami Alaine Gibbs.  

Gibbs was booked on two felony charges of battery and criminal threats and three misdemeanors, including hate crime. Her bail was set at $134,000.

“I can’t believe someone would do that at school to a principal,” said Christina Lopez, another parent at the school.

The school has implemented a new uniform policy but isn’t actively enforcing it yet. The issue was the skulls on the boy’s shirt.

      Give the mother(poor excuse of a mother)a break, what is the matter with you, this assault goes way beyond her childs shirt, overboard, she is a criminal and should be treated as one, I feel sorry for her child I know where he will eventually end up. In prison they tattoo new monsters all over themselves from the high monster collection.

        Do not talk about the kid like that..It’s not his fault! Everyone makes their own decisions in life..so don’t make assumptions that he will be in prison tatted up! He has a choice so don’t fail him from the gate. He is a good child, and very smart!! Keep your opinions to yourself!!

    3. KATHIE says:

      THERE IS NO SCHOOL POLICY AT THIS TIME OVER UNIFORMS, YES YOU SPELLED IT WRONG YES IT WAS WRONG TO STRIKE OUT ,WHAT WOULD YOU DO??? DO YOU HAVE CHILDREN?

    4. jamie says:

      Really you all don’t know all of the story!! The principal was saying that the Caucasian race was not the minority and that means the smaller part or number, and my child attended this school and they are the minority!!!! The mother was trying to get a waiver!!

  3. michelle says:

    !) Mom should not have punched the principle.

    2)If it was the rule and it has been in effect for a month, the kid should not have worn the shirt.

    3) I saw the shirt on TV. The rule is LAME. Nothing wrong or gang like about the shirt. It is a skateboard shirt with skate stuff in the foreground and shadowy skulls in the background. Nothing violent. There are many types of dress that could be deemed inappropriate by different persons for different reasons. We could go on arguing for days. Problem solved by going to uniforms. Polo shirts and khaki pants or shorts.

    PLEASE HELP THIS MOTHER!! THIS IS WHY WE HOME SCHOOL.

      This is why I.C.E should visit these schools.

    A couple of years ago Filmore had uniforms, Last year no uniforms. A week before school started notices were sent to parents. That children had to wear uniform. Most parents already had bought their children school clothes before the notice went out. And there was nothing wrong with that shirt.

  6. chris says:

    like the parents that let there kids wear their pants all the way down to there knees.. do u know how stupid your kids look to others and adults? stupid…nor me or my older 80 something grandparents want to see that.. then they run from cops when doing something bad and 90% end up getting caught cause they fall over there own pants. hahhahha… idiots

    Remember folks the LIBERAL MEDIA is only telling you the LIBERAL side of the story .I beleave there is 2 sides to this story and i’m sure it’s the school that started this confrontation . this is why alot of kids are now home schooled

  8. Ginger Reese says:

    They want to tell the kids how to dress but, they won’t tell the kids to wear a helme when they ride teir bikes. Te helmet law is more inportant than the how they dress. Let’s have all our kids home schooled then we can not worry about how they dress. I see kids walking & rding bikes everyday the kids on bikes are not wearing helmets & if thye get hit will the parents sue. Three kids on one bike is not right. No one has the right to hit anothe person no matter how mad or upset they are. The Mother is supposed to teach her kis not to fight. She is a poor example of a parent.

    Scott C I read all 4 of your comments when I read the first one I though what a jerk when I was done reading the last one I thought wow what a jerk.

    Most of these posts are a good reason for being FROM Stockton posts like these are why juvenile hall and the prison are bursting at the seams. Bottom line, if they are not taught to follow rules they will NEVER have a decent job or life, and proper dress is important. There is a strict dress code in juvie hall and prison, might want to keep that in mind.

  13. SubStocktonian says:

    Scott C is obviously not an educated man. “These Schools harbor anchor Babies”… Thats about the most ignorant thing ive ever heard. Hey bud, way to regurgitate a term that was invented by FOX NEWS to reframe the issue of our albeit horrid immigration policy, in order to pump up racist idiots like you to vote Repblican. Heres some information for you: The State of California was once a part of the Nation of Mexico. Indigenous Peoples lived here and were colonized by the Spanish (which by the way is another foreign country accross the Atlantic, for which you are probably lacking racist sentiments because they are caucasian) In addition to the fact that indigenous people, Mexican people, Italians, Japanese, Portugese, Germans, Phillipinos, have lived here for generations and came here in pursuit of a better life; if you werent aware, we have an agricultural economy here in the central valley, in fact, its the biggest producer of agriculture in the world. Mexico happens to have an extremely poor economy and an extremely large migrant aricultural workforce. Weve been more than content with letting Mexican People come towork our fields for near slave wages. Do their children not deserve an education? Is any child not entitled to a fair shot at life? Save your ignorane and biggotry because the same people that want (and have a vested interest in) you to think that way dont give a sh*t about you. Finally, regardless of the reasons which led to this unfortunate occurrence, to advocate violence or to imply that the teacher was out of line for trying to enforce a school policy which was undoubtedly created for the kids’ benefit is ridiculous. Every parent wants to stick up for their kid, but far too often parents overzealously advocate on behalf of their child in opposition of educators who are only trying to further that childs development through discipline and consistency. Teachers make it their life’s purpose to educate and help raise these kids, how about helping them out; that is, as opposed to punching them in the face.
