We continue to work very hard to ensure that your child has an environment where they can feel emotionally and physically safe, and we are encouraged by the positive progress we are seeing. As always, thank you for your support and partnership."

The letter to parents also stated that the "parents of the impacted student have been notified and supports are available to the student."

Over the past few weeks, the district has been trying to get a handle on five different investigations at the high school amid a series of scandals, staff shakeups and student protests, and angry parents.
