The day care director at a private school in Greenville has been arrested on a charge she struck a 2-year-old with a paint stirrer in what the school called a spanking.

An arrest warrant and police report indicate that 47-year-old Shannon Renae Jacobs of Winterville struck the child twice with a paint stirrer on April 12. She was charged with assault on a child younger than 12 and was given a $3,000 bond.

The incident occurred at Trinity Christian School, 3111 Golden Road, where Jacobs is the day care director. Jacobs notified the child's parents that she had disciplined their child by striking him with the paint stirrer, police reported.

When the parents picked the child up from the day care, he had visible injuries on his left arm and left leg, police reported. The parents filed a police report on April 13. On Thursday, detectives obtained an warrant, and Jacobs turned herself in to the magistrate’s office at the Pitt County Detention center on Friday.

Trinity Christian placed a statement regarding the incident on its website. It said it will no longer allow corporal punishment. 

“As this matter involves the staff member administering a spanking, upon the advice of legal counsel and after prayerful deliberation, the pastor and deacon board have decided to immediately discontinue any corporal discipline at the school and rely on other disciplinary measures for the students,” the statement said.

When an allegation is made against an employee at the school, the church immediately removes that individual from any contact with children pending the outcome of the criminal matter, and church and school officials fully cooperate with parents, state officials and law enforcement, the statement said.

It is unclear whether Jacobs continue to work at the school, and the church did not answer further questions.

“We believe that if children are safe anywhere, they should be safe at church,” the church statement said. “As a matter of policy, Trinity reports all suspicions of potential child abuse to the authorities. We carefully interview and screen our employees and volunteers, and our leadership team works to maintain child protection policies based on best practices nationally and North Carolina State law. We believe that transparency, child safety, and accountability are essential for successful ministry, and we are fully committed to ministering to our students in a safe and responsible manner.”

Jacobs posted bond, and her next court date is May 21.
