Wyoming City Schools Superintendent Tim Weber
“I am absolutely horrified by the incident alleged to have taken place in the Wyoming High School locker room on Friday, April 28.
We will take the strongest actions possible to support those in need,
I cannot comment on the specifics of any individual student discipline process due to state and federal law. I can say that this type of allegation would ordinarily result in the most serious form of discipline that we can impose.
This does not represent the core values of Wyoming City Schools.”
Wyoming High School Principal James Stallings
“We appreciate the quick actions of the Wyoming Police Department and our students and staff in reporting and carrying out the investigation process. At Wyoming High School, we teach and demonstrate high character and will continue to care for each other as a community.”
Despite the incidents and arrests the Wyoming baseball program moves forward with upcoming schedules and the OHSAA tournament.
