Substitute Teacher Removed from Winding Waters K-8 for Inappropriately Touching Student

WEEKI WACHEE – The Hernando County Sheriff's Office is investigating a disturbing incident that occurred at Winding Waters K-8, after a substitute teacher was removed from campus on Thursday.

A bulletin sent out to parents last night that reads: This afternoon, Winding Waters administration was made aware of student's allegations of inappropriate touching by a substitute teacher in a middle grade classroom. School administration immediately escorted the substitute from the campus and referred the incident to the Hernando County Sheriff's Office for investigation. Substitutes are employees of Kelly Services and Kelly Services will also conduct and immediate and thorough investigation into the matter. The substitute will not be permitted to return to any Hernando school, pending the outcome of the investigation. Thank you for your attention.

Commenters on the WWK-8 Facebook page allege that the suspect was a substitute music teacher and that he inappropriately touched a female student. Others say he pulled a student's hair. The facts of case have not been released by officials at this time.

We will bring more on this story as it develops.

Perhaps this child was made uncomfortable and couldn't accurately voice it. Wouldn't be the first time
