"In order to prevent the spread of misinformation and keep the lines of communication open, we want to provide you with information regarding a recent situation at West Middle School," the email stated. "Earlier this week, a female student reported that, toward the end of the day, in the lower cafeteria area, two male students attempted sexual relations with her in the boy’s bathroom."

After a thorough investigation, that included interviews with students throughout a two-day period, the email states the students directly involved in the sexual misconduct were removed from school premises.

If the allegations are confirmed, the discipline for students involved in this behavior includes one or more of the following:

Stay with Hazelwood Patch as we follow the situation.

I wonder what our State Rep Margo McNeil thinks about this? You have people in control who are afraid to do the right thing. They are worried about being politically correct. Luckily, my kids are grown, and do not have to attend the Hazelwood Schools. I appreciate the good teachers who are trying to teach in these conditions. I hope you are near retirement. I have no faith in most of the parents of this district. People are more worried about " American Idol" and Reality T.V. then finding out what is happening in their school district, city and state.
