Six kindergartners are missing from their classes at an elementary school in the Racine Unified School District in Wisconsin, having reportedly been suspended for simulating sex acts in a coat room adjacent to their classroom.
The sex acts had reportedly been going on since preschool.
A grandmother told WITI that a girl pressured her 5-year-old grandson into inappropriate touching.
“I couldn’t believe some of the things in that [public school] report,” she said. “It was shocking.”
The teacher reportedly wasn’t aware that the sex acts were happening, but according to the grandmother and documents obtained by WITI, a female student told her mother what was going on in the coat room. It was then reported to school administrators two weeks ago.
One student reportedly told officials that the sexual contact was a daily occurrence. The students who weren’t directly involved would watch.
The students would “pretend that they are putting their Legos away, and sneak to engage in the activity," according to the documents.
The unnamed grandmother also claimed they used phrases like “having sex.”
"Where was the teacher?" she asked.
A total of six students were suspended for one month following the incident. The children who haven’t been suspended will talk to counselors about what happened.
"The reason I decided to do the interview is so it doesn’t happen again," the grandmother said. "No child will be kicked out of school for something that the staff or the administration -- they should be on top of things like this."
The teacher remains under investigation.
