The release said investigators had found a series of texts between Rambosk and a student between Jan. 30 and Feb. 2, where the student had “made references to killing herself and said she had already tried twice.”

On Feb. 2, the student allegedly told Rambosk that she had taken multiple pills at school and was overdosing, according to the release.

Rambosk allegedly did not render aid but did tell the student’s sister.

Okaloosa EMS took the student to a hospital after the school resource officer learned about the incident and called for aid.

The release said Rambosk did not contact law enforcement, the Abuse Hotline of the Department of Children and Families, medical services, school staff or the child’s mother.
