There are shocking allegations of sexual molestation in the bathrooms at an Oroville elementary school.
The victims and alleged perpetrators are all seven years old or younger.
Trisha Clementi spent Monday morning handing out letters to parents at Stanford Avenue Elementary School telling parents about children being molested in school bathrooms.
She says she learned of her six-year-old daughter's experience over Thanksgiving break.
"She told her uncle that a little girl was pulling her in the bathroom and having sex with her," Clementi said.
That's when Clementi sat her daughter down to find out exactly what she meant by sex.
"She went into 45 minutes of horrific detail," Clementi said. "I was so taken aback, I can't explain the details she went into, but no six year old child will ever say those words."
Clementi immediately called Child Protective Services and Oroville Police.
Once school was back in session she went straight to the principal.
"She was shocked. Then she came back at me, Well we did have first graders having sex in the bathroom, and that was in the beginning of the year," Clementi said. "She said, 'When I investigated it, sex wasn't what they thought is meant.'"
Superintendent Dr. Penny Chennell-Carter says she didn't learn of the incident in the boys’ bathroom until after Clementi came forward with her allegations, and at that point she launched a full investigation.
"As a school district we take any allegations like this very seriously, and we went right to work involving the appropriate agencies," Chennell-Carter said.
Since the allegations came to light the superintendent says the school has notified parents of the problem through a letter sent home with the students and have added extra staff to monitor the bathrooms.
She is also working to bring in CPS workers to help train teachers on ways to deal with similar situations.
"The actions they are taking now should have been taken months ago," Clementi said.
The superintendent held a two and a half hour long meeting Monday with dozens of upset parents where she says she heard of three new incidents involving inappropriate behavior that she will be investigating.
But that isn't comforting to Clementi.
"The schools investigation is what failed my daughter," Clementi said.
Action News spoke to several other parents who said their children had been pulled into the bathroom by boys who then exposed themselves.
One parent was upset by the negative attention saying Stanford Avenue Elementary is a wonderful school with excellent teachers.
Clementi acknowledged that there are great teachers at the school, but says several failed to do the right thing.
