Vague letter from school principal prompts parent concerns, questions

A letter from a Fort Worth elementary school principal involving a child's welfare has parents asking a lot of questions.

The vague letter from Nash Elementary School Principal Blanca Galindo said, "We recently experienced an on-campus event involving an individual's child's welfare. Please understand that I am constrained by law in what I can tell you about this matter. However, I can tell you the matter was dealt with swiftly and appropriately."

"As a parent, I want to know what's going on, especially because there are rumors that it happened in pre-K," said parent Selene Moya. "I have my kid in pre-K."

Fort Worth police have confirmed that its Crimes Against Children unit is looking into an incident between two students.

A school district spokesman declined an on-camera interview with FOX 4, saying to release anything further would violate the privacy of the family involved.

The letter goes on to say, "Please encourage your children to discuss with you any inappropriate activity they may experience or witness either at school or elsewhere."

Some parents tell FOX 4 that the school called a meeting with pre-K parents on Monday afternoon, and a note went out to alert them of an impromptu discussion.

Other parents, however, say they are in the dark and not happy about it at all.

"As parents who drop our kids off here every morning, we'd like to know what's going on, and I think we have the right to know that," said parent Selina Chindiwo.
