5th-grader says the school board of bullying, gun threat

PLAISTOW, N. H. – the fifth grade students in New Hampshire, who wants to stop bullying has told her school board that they are threatened to get shot in the head with an AK-47 assault rifle and buried in her garden.

Delanie Marcotte, of Pollard elementary School in Plaistow, said she is a victim of bullying. She read a letter from the board of directors last week, said her parents contacted the school about it, but it remains.

“I was threatened to get shot in the head by an AK-47 and buried in my backyard, and many other things,” Delanie said with tears. “I ask you: What will you do to protect me and my classmates against bullying?”

“I’m here to stand up for each boy who is being bullied,” she added, as people applauded.

Her father gave her comments on Facebook.

“It is very difficult to watch your child being bullied, hearing about it day in and day out, and you get very aggravated,” Todd Marcotte said. “It is a problem, and it is a problem that must be solved.”

Timberlane Regional School District Superintendent Earl Metzler tells NBC10 Boston, Delanie concerns the district’s “undivided attention.” He said that it continues to encourage students to speak when they see, hear, or something that makes them feel uncomfortable.
