FREMONT (KPIX 5) — A 7-year old Fremont boy accused of groping an 8-year old female classmate on two separate occasions has been removed from the school.

Kimberly Weiss, the mother of the female student from Hirsch Elementary School handed out fliers to other parents at the school Tuesday morning before the boy was removed, saying their children could be at risk.

“He grabbed her private areas, and then came behind her, and like was making motions that he was having sexual intercourse with her,” Weiss said.

She says her daughter had been groped twice in six weeks at the Fremont school. The first time, she says the school suspended the boy for a day, and allowed him back into the same classroom. The second time, she says the principal gave her two options: the boy would be transferred to a different classroom, or her daughter could switch schools. But, that wasn’t the only thing that upset Weiss.

“She asked me why my daughter didn’t punch him in the face. I told her my daughter would not be coming back to campus as long as the boy is here,” Weiss said.

But, the district stepped in Tuesday morning, and removed the boy from the campus.

“The allegations were taken very seriously, and after meeting with the parents, a decision was made that the boy will not be returning to the school,” Superintendent Jim Morris said.

Kimberly says she is grateful for the school’s action, but still filed a formal complaint against the principal.

Since the incidents, Weiss says her daughter has been struggling.

“I’ve been trying to talk to her. I don’t know if she’s afraid. I don’t know if it’s that she’s ashamed. I don’t know if she’s embarrassed. I don’t know if it’s that, I just know she really doesn’t want to.”
