A Columbus County principal took matters into her own hands after a snake was found in a third-grade classroom.
Acme Delco Elementary School Principal Janet Hedrick killed the foot-long snake that was spotted Wednesday after classes ended. She couldn’t identify the species.
Maintenance staff spread snake repellent in the area, according to Columbus County Schools spokesman Kelly Jones. He said no students came in contact with the snake.
