Kendall resident Brandy Rieck read a letter to the Royall Board of Education at its meeting Monday, asserting that three separate third-degree sexual-assault incidents had occurred on district school buses within the last four weeks.

Rieck questioned why the school administration had not informed either district parents or the bus drivers and had not called the police.

Additionally, Rieck alleged that a student recently had made a death threat against a fellow student.

At the meeting, the board and administration did not respond to Rieck, nor did they confirm or deny the accusations.

The County Line’s attempts to reach Superintendent Mark Gruen via phone were unsuccessful.
