— A second-grade Walworth Elementary School teacher arrested in the school parking lot on a cocaine possession charge pleaded not guilty Friday.

Katie M. Luessenhop, 26, Delavan, was arrested Sept. 18 after police were called to the school for a disturbance, Walworth police said.


Luessenhop remains free on a $5,000 signature bond.


Walworth Joint No. 1 School District Administrator Pamela Knorr said after Luessenhop’s arrest that the teacher had taken a leave of absence.


The school has hired a substitute teacher to replace her.


Luessenhop will be in court next Nov. 5.
