MIDDLEBURG, Fla. -- A second Clay County teen has come forward, claiming to be a victim of bullying in recent months at Middleburg High School.
Haley Napieracz says rumors, teasing and threats pushed the 17-year-old girl to the extreme.
"I took some medicine just to try to forget about it all, to just drift off and forget about it."
It happened at the same school where 17-year-old Tierra Hartley, claims she was beat up by another classmate last week.
"The same person that did that to her, tried to do that to me."
Her father, Joseph Napieracz, says he complained ton school officials early on.
"We made at least three calls before she attempted to overdose, but we didn't seem to get any response out of it other than they'd keep an eye on it."
From there they say the bullying only got worse and so did Haley's depression.
"They blew it off. They treated it like it was nothing."
Action News asked school officials what happened and were told they can't comment on any investigations involving juveniles.
They did provide a copy of the school systems anti-bullying policies and procedures that call for intense investigations into any bullying complaint. It also says principals are responsible for following up with the parents of bullying victims with an action plan to protect their children.
Joe Napieracz says that never happened.
Haley is now homeschooled for her own safety and mental health, Joe Napieracz says. Still, he vows to continue to push for changes to the policy now that another student has been hurt.
"If you're not going to follow through, what's the sense in having them?"
A school spokesperson tells Action News that the student who allegedly attacked Tierra Hartley has been suspended for 10 days, and the principal has recommended she be expelled. The Clay County School Board will make a decision later this month. If her suspension ends before the disciplinary hearing takes place, she will be placed in an alternative school for "at risk" students.
