A Boston Public Schools teacher had to take herself to the doctor and then the police station after a student threw “boiling hot” ramen-noodle water on her face — and the school’s principal wouldn’t call 911, according to a police report.

A 14-year-old boy has been sent a summons, being charged as a juvenile with aggravated assault, according to a police report obtained by the Herald from the May 5 incident at the McKinley Middle School.

It started when the boy was trying to heat up instant ramen noodles in the microwave, and tried to put a textbook in with them, according to police. The teacher told him not to do that, and went over to take the book away — but the kid snatched it back.
