"While we are still learning about the circumstances surrounding the allegations, we are confident that no students are currently in any danger. We believe this is an opportunity to discuss with your child the importance of maintaining open communication with you as parents or another, trusted adult, especially if they feel that something inappropriate or uncomfortable has happened at or related to school.
