Reinstatement of Employee | Restablecimiento del empleado

Dear parents and families of the KPH Community,

In February 2020, I informed the Kelvyn Park school community that CPS was investigating an allegation that one of our staff members engaged inappropriately with students. We take all allegations very seriously, and the district took the immediate step to remove the staff member and initiate an investigation. Based on the information learned during the Office of Inspector General’s investigation, a determination was made that it is safe for our staff member to return to Kelvyn Park.

Nothing is more important to us than the safety and well-being of your children. We take all allegations extremely seriously, and this investigation was necessary to ensure that your child’s safety was being appropriately safeguarded. I know this may have been a disruption to our school community, and I thank you for your commitment to the well-being of Kelvyn Park during this time.

I am confident that Kelvyn Park will continue to grow and be a strong school community where students’ best interests are the central focus each and every day.

Please feel free to contact me at [email protected] or 773.534.4200 if you have any questions or concerns.

Sincerely,

Keith W. Adams, Ed.D., Interim Principal


Estimados padres y familias de la Escuela Kelvyn Park:

En febrero de 2020, le informé a la comunidad escolar de Kelvyn Park que CPS estaba investigando una acusación de conducta inapropiada por parte de un miembro del personal hacia unos estudiantes. Tomamos seriamente todas las acusaciones, y el distrito tomó la medida inmediata de expulsar al miembro del personal y de iniciar una investigación. De acuerdo con la información obtenida durante la investigación de la Oficina del Inspector General, se determinó que es seguro que nuestro empleado vuelva a la escuela.

Nada es más importante que la seguridad y el bienestar de sus hijos. Las investigaciones son necesarias para que garanticemos plenamente la seguridad de su hijo. Sabemos que este incidente ha causado molestias a nuestra comunidad escolar, y les agradezco por su compromiso con el bienestar de Kelvyn Park durante este tiempo.

Confío que Kelvyn Park seguirá creciendo y siendo una comunidad escolar sólida, donde los intereses superiores de los estudiantes son el enfoque central todos los días.

Si tiene alguna pregunta, no dude en contactarme al [email protected] o al 773.534.4200.

Atentamente,

Keith W. Adams, Ed.D., Director Interino
