Statement of North Middlesex Superintendent Joan Landers Regarding Man Who Exposed Himself on School Property
PEPPERELL – The following is a statement from Superintendent Joan Landers regarding the arrest of a man who allegedly exposed himself at the Varnum Brook Elementary School this morning.
“Today, the Pepperell Police Department responded to the Varnum Brook Elementary School after staff reported that a man had exposed himself to an employee in the front office. The man entered the main entrance of the building and proceeded to the front desk to ask about missing property. His inappropriate actions resulted in his immediate arrest. Students did not witness the incident and class was not disrupted.
“It appears that the school department’s established building access and security procedures work as designed, sending the individual directly to the front desk and preventing access to any students.
“We want to ensure parents and the community that at no time were students in any danger and that our staff responded quickly and effectively, in conjunction with the Pepperell Police Department, to remove this individual from school property. The school administration extends our appreciation to the Pepperell Police Department for their immediate response and actions.”
