The Lexington Public Schools was recently made aware of allegations concerning the treatment of some students in one of its classrooms at the Harrington Elementary School. Out of an abundance of caution, the District immediately placed a classroom teacher and a paraprofessional on paid administrative leave pending the completion of an internal investigation. The Harrington administration also immediately notified the Parents of the students involved of these allegations and, per the law, notified the Department of Children and Families so that they may conduct an independent investigation.
The Lexington Public Schools is committed to the safety of all our students and takes any allegation involving the treatment of students very seriously. However, as this is an on-going investigation involving personnel, we are unable to provide any further information at this time.
