LEXINGTON, Mo. — Parents of children in a local elementary school in Lexington are feuding with school officials over a case of sexual assault in a kindergarten class.

 

According to FOX4, Lexington Police are leading an investigation where a kindergarten boy sexually assaulted two girl classmates by sticking his hand down their pants. Law enforcement is investigating whether school staff knew about the assault and didn’t do enough to stop the incidents from happening.

The feud in question involves the schools safety plan. One parent says the principal of Leslie Bell Elementary denied a second allegation of assault saying the incident could not have happened due to their safety plan in place. A statement by Lexington Superintendent Sarrah Morgan says safety is their biggest priority.

Another parent says the boy did the same to his daughter.
