In a statement given by Carlisle Superintendent Jason Clark, the incident in question involved a male and female student. Clark said an internal school investigation was conducted immediately following report of the occurrence. He said local authorities were also contacted and are conducting their own investigating of the incident.
“An incident between a male and female student occurred in a school bathroom last Tuesday,” Clark said. ‘It was promptly reported to the high school office and an immediate investigation into the matter was conducted by high school principal, Brad Horn. Shortly after, the Carlisle Police Department was notified of the incident along with other required agencies.”
Due to the privacy act, Clark said he is unable to release any details concerning the nature of the incident.
