NEW ROCHELLE– Parents of New Rochelle High School students received this email last night regarding the story we posted about the High School librarian accused of sexual advanced toward a sixteen year old student:
As you may have learned through news reports earlier today, the New Rochelle Police Department has arrested one of our librarians, Marissa Anton. She has been charged with a D felony involving a minor. The allegations involve a male student here at New Rochelle High School.
Ms. Anton has been suspended from her assignment until further notice. As with all matters concerning our students, these allegations are taken very seriously. We are deeply concerned about the nature of the charges that have been made against her. The high school staff, in conjunction with district administration will, of course, give full cooperation to law enforcement authorities.
If your child is concerned or distraught about this situation, please be assured that as always, counselors, teachers and administrators are readily available to support them.
