A Poway dad told 10News his son has been bullied at Twin Peaks Middle School and he isn't happy with the with the school district's response, but an official said the situation has been investigated and addressed appropriately.
Jarred Christian said his 13-year-old son has been hit, kicked and targeted with death threats but "nobody's helping" kids who are being bullied, according to 10News' report Tuesday.
Mel Robertson, the associate superintendent for the Poway Unified School District's Learning Support Services, told Patch on Wednesday that school officials conducted a "deep investigation" and have addressed the concerns "appropriately and diligently."
"Bullying cannot be tolerated and will not be tolerated at any of our schools," Robertson said. "That really is very important."
Robertson declined to comment about specific details of the situation, including what did or did not happen. She did say that the school conducted an investigation last week, addressed the concerns and both students are back in school now.
Christian, in the 10News report, said the offending student had been suspended and his son had stayed home from school for a day, scared.
Patch has reached out to Christian and will update if he responds.
