Dear Parents and Guardians,
As your Superintendent, it is my priority to keep our parents, guardians and community informed. Therefore, I write to advise you of an alleged incident that occurred on a District school bus between two students. Recently, we received an accusation of a serious nature involving the students on one of our buses. The matter was promptly referred to local authorities, an internal investigation continues to be conducted, and the alleged offender has been removed from school property.
Given the sensitive nature of the accusation and being bound by the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act, I am unable to identify the students or release particular details surrounding this incident. The incident was between students only and we have no reason to believe additional students were involved. It also did not involve drugs of any kind, threats, weapons, or a physical altercation.
The District is continuing its investigation and cooperating with local authorities during this time. If anyone has questions or concerns regarding this matter, please contact me directly.
Dr. Nick Fitzgerald
Superintendent of Schools
