My hope is that this message finds you enjoying the commencement of the Spring season.
Recently and in response to a recent news story broadcast by the local CBS affiliate WFSB, I wish to confirm that an investigation continues to be conducted at AHS by the Avon Police Department in relation to allegations that inappropriate pictures were circulated via cellular phones among some portion of the student body.
As with any police investigation, district and school officials are not involved in or aware of any of the details of this investigation. We have also been requested to limit any comments as not to interfere with the ongoing investigation.
Once verified information is made available to us by police officials, the school and district will respond appropriately.
Given that there has been a noticeable increase in reports of similar acts being perpetuated by students in our state and across the country, I am seeking your assistance to remind your children about the appropriate use of a cell phone and what to do should they receive inappropriate information on it.
Thank you for your patience and continued support of your schools.
Very truly yours,
Gary S. Mala
Superintendent of Schools
