3rd-grader removed from Fremont school amid claims he sexually harassed girl

The past 12 days have seen a wide range of stories coming out of Fremont Unified School District. Here’s the most recent:

FREMONT — A third-grade Hirsch Elementary student accused of sexually harassing a female classmate has been removed from his school, a Fremont district official said Tuesday.

Fremont Unified School District Superintendent James Morris announced the decision about an hour after the 8-year-old girl’s mother handed out 200 fliers outside the Irvington district campus, calling for the boy’s removal from the school.

The mother says the 7-year-old boy twice touched her daughter in a sexual way during a six-week period, with the most recent instance occurring Thursday on campus.

“Unless we as parents all get together to stand against this, nothing will change,” she wrote in the flier. “Help me support our girls against this type of behavior.”

This newspaper is not naming the mother in order to protect the identity of her daughter.
