Former part-time Winnebago Public School staff member accused of inappropriate contact with students

WINNEBAGO, Nebraska (KTIV) – A part-time staff member of the Winnebago Public School has been fired after school officials say he had inappropriate contact with some Winnebago students, this according to the school’s Facebook page.

The post says that last Friday, the Winnebago School District became aware a part-time staff member may have had inappropriate contact with some students.

The school says students shared details of these interactions with a staff member.

School administrators immediately contacted Child Family Services, local law enforcement, and the FBI.

According to the Facebook post, the accused staff member’s employment has been terminated and he is subject to a “stay away” directive.

This directive prohibits him from being on school grounds or attending any school-related event.

The school adds the parents of the students who reported any contact have been individually notified by the school district.

School officials say parents who have not received contact from the school should know this means their student is not suspected of being involved in this situation.

However, any parents who have reason to believe their child may have been victimized should contact law enforcement immediately.
