Cedar Creek High School students and their families recently explored France and Spain while furthering their knowledge of the countries’ cultures and languages. On this trip, they were exposed to diverse aspects of European culture, including tours of the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre. They also experienced the more adventurous side of the Spanish culture though flamenco shows and bullfights.
The investigation of a 15-year-old high school student accused of sexual battery was reportedly ongoing for nearly two weeks before school authorities were notified.
“We were totally unaware of the situation,” Union Parish Schools Superintendent George Cannon said.
The student, who attends Farmerville High School, was accused of sexually molesting three girls ages 4, 6 and 8 on the bus in the mornings before daylight.
Apparently, one of the girls told their mother what was going on, law enforcement officials were notified, and an investigation began.
