    D.C. principal accused in parking lot beat-down

    The principal of a District high school and two staff members have been accused of beating up a former co-worker after a homecoming football game.

    Thelma Jarrett, principal of Calvin Coolidge High School in Northwest Washington, surrendered to D.C. police Thursday morning on a warrant charge of simple assault.

    Jarrett and two other women, Donna Pixley, 52, and Bridgette V. Stevens, 42, are accused of hitting and kicking a former employee in a parking lot outside the high school football stadium in Northwest on Nov. 2.

    The victim, Rashida King-Hicks, told D.C. police she heard Jarrett say, "Get her, *****!" before the blows rained down on her.

    King-Hicks told The Washington Examiner that she does not know why she was attacked, but had no further comment.

    Jarrett and the two staff members were placed on administrative leave Nov. 9, according to DC Public Schools officials. Stevens is listed on Coolidge rosters as an administrative assistant, and Pixley was a registrar.

    Jarrett, a 19-year veteran of DCPS, was promoted in 2009 and ordered to turn around severely troubled Coolidge High. She is best known for hiring the first woman in the United States to coach a high school varsity football team.
