NORTH PORT — Sarasota County School District officials confirmed that five teachers at Lamarque Elementary School called 911 Wednesday to report they had fallen ill, with two of the teachers transported by ambulance to the North Port ER, and one driven in a car to an area facility for treatment.

Although two of the instructors returned to the classroom, all five teachers were lightheaded and dizzy, according to North Port Fire Marshal Michael Frantz, who added that all five calls came within an hour and a half of one another. Frantz added that the teachers were experiencing symptoms similar to those who suffer from high blood pressure.
