Police are investigating an incident that occurred at Patrick J. Bethel High School on the island of Abaco recently. Acting Director of Education, Dominique McCartney-Russell was asked by reporters for comment on the incident.

She said, “it is serious for us because we don’t want any form of inappropriate touching by any of our children regardless of their age. We want our schools to be a safe environment, they should be and that’s what we want to maintain. And so we want to encourage our boys and our girls to provide safe touches. And so we take it seriously and we are dealing with it.”
