Two teachers at Brookhaven’s Cross Keys High School are under investigation following reports they threatened students about being deported, according to Reporter Newspapers broadcast partner CBS46.

DeKalb County Schools received reports of the alleged threats Nov. 10 and removed the teachers from the school.

“The two teachers in question were removed immediately from the school pending completion of the investigation,” said DeKalb Schools spokesperson Quinn Hudson in a statement to CBS46. “Threatening, abusive behavior will not be tolerated in any way and such behavior will be dealt with without delay.”

Cross Keys is on North Druid Hills Road in the Buford Highway corridor, which is home to an extremely diverse community of people who have immigrated from around the globe.
