• School Crossing Guard on Leave: No one’s Talking About Why

    Citizens and others, notably parents of school-aged children, have besieged school district officials and City of Pacific Grove officials for information after it was disclosed that a male crossing guard was placed on paid administrative leave this month after his name came up during an ongoing police investigation pertaining to activities of another individual.

    An email was sent to parents by school superintendent Ralph Porras stating that the school was advised of the action but knows no more than that.

    Little is known about the subject of the investigation or what potential crime may have been commited by that third party. “…This is a personnel matter and no further information will be released by the City at this time,” Porras wrote. He quoted the City as saying “the investigation pertaining to the individual’s possible knowledge or involvement is preliminary. No reference should be made regarding him, or as to the subject or the outcome of the investigation.”

    The City of Pacific Grove hires and manages school crossing guards. A temporary replacement is in place until the investigation is complete.
