Flyers posted around Chappaqua accuse Horace Greeley High School of not doing enough for the children sexually abused by a former drama teacher three years ago.
The flyers claim the high school continues to pay legal counsel to "battle and invalidate the child victims of Christopher Schraufnagel," and that there has been no in-depth investigation into the incident. At the bottom of some of the signs, it says that the high school did all this to "avoid bad press."
They also allege that the school still pays legal counsel to "battle and invalidate the child victims of Christopher Schraufnagel."
The anonymously posted fliers are stapled onto telephone poles on King Street, which is just a mile away from the high school.
While many parents say that the school is just protecting itself, others disagree. Some parents say a new administration is now at the high school so it's time to forget the past and recover.
Schraufnagel was suspended without pay and resigned three years ago after being charged with sexually abusing three of his students. He pleaded guilty and was forced to register as a level 3 sex offender.
News 12 reached out to the Chappaqua School District for comment but has not heard back.
