Carlisle School Director of Food Services arrested Placed on administrative leave
Carlisle School Superintendent Marie Doyle informed parents by e-mail of the situation on Wednesday afternoon. She wrote that the Dracut police "report that the charges do not involve any Carlisle children. Chief Sullivan and I met with the cafeteria staff this afternoon. They witnessed no cases of inappropriate behavior while working with Mr. Dockham who has been employed by our school system since September 2005."
Sullivan said the police did not plan to maintain a monitor on campus, but would respond to any call for assistance.
Dockham has worked in the food service industry for over 15 years. He was previously employed by the Stoneham and Winthrop schools, and has held management positions at McDonalds, a bakery and Boston Market. He lives in Dracut and has two children.
