The Globe reports on a Nov. 3 incident on a BPS bus transporting students at the Boston Renaissance charter school in Hyde Park, in which a 6-year-old allegedly sexually assaulted another student repeatedly.
The school itself issued a statement:
We are aware of the Facebook post that has been circulating regarding an alleged incident on a school bus earlier this month.
We can assure all Boston Renaissance families that the school leadership team took immediate action and followed appropriate legal protocols, contacting law enforcement immediately upon learning of the issue. We have taken this matter very seriously and have taken appropriate measures to ensure student safety. We have also taken the appropriate steps to protect the privacy of the children who were involved.
This is a highly sensitive matter. We ask our school community to respect the privacy of our students and families, and allow the school to handle this appropriately.
