A 6-year-old boy who was punished two weeks ago for kissing a girl on the cheek got an apology Friday from his school’s superintendent.
Accused of “unwelcome touching,” first-grader Johnathan Prevette was separated from his class and not allowed to participate in an ice cream party. Johnathan said the girl asked him to kiss her.
In a statement released Friday, Superintendent Jim Simeon said Johnathan was never accused of sexual harassment, although his parents were told the kiss could pose a problem under the policy.
“In retrospect, I can understand how this could have been confusing, and I apologize to Mr. and Mrs. Prevette and Johnathan for the misunderstanding that the sexual harassment policy was applied in this matter,” Simeon said.
