Subject: Important Robotics Update

Dear Grosse Pointe North and Grosse Pointe South Parents,

Within the last several days, GPPSS received a complaint that in 2014 an adult mentor in the robotics program had what appears to have been a voluntary, but nevertheless inappropriate, sexual relationship with a student in the robotics program. Upon receiving this complaint, GPPSS promptly reported it to the Grosse Pointe Woods Department of Public Safety, which has investigated the charges. This matter is currently being reviewed by the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office. 

Certainly this individual will no longer have any role related to Grosse Pointe Public School System or its programs. 

If you feel your child has information that it is important for Grosse Pointe Woods Public Safety to be aware of during their investigation, please contact Detective Ryan Schroerlucke at 313-343-2412.
