Police says they found evidence of an improper relationship, stating: “Their contact was of a sexual nature.”
The school’s superintendent Susan Bohn said in a statement: ‘Lockhart parents entrust their children to us every day, and it is something we do not take lightly.
‘Student safety is the district's most important priority. As soon as we learned of the report, we acted swiftly to involve law enforcement and CPS to conduct a thorough investigation. The district does not and will not tolerate any improper communication or contact between a teacher and child.’
