WILLIAMSVILLE, N.Y. (WIVB) - It's been more than a week since freshman Jamey Rodemeyer took his own life. Students and parents say the school knows who the bullies are who tormented him.
Parents are frustrated with information coming from the Williamsville School District, saying they still don't know what the district is doing about handling the bullying problem that led to 14-year-old Jamey Rodemeyer's suicide.
Dan Gestwick, like many other parents with kids in Williamsville schools, wants answers.
"It's been almost two weeks, and we haven't heard about a punishment," said Gestwick.
In a message to parents, district officials put out a letter stating they are removing how bullying incidents are handled and that the response could include "disciplinary consequences for those who bully as well as support for children who are victims of bullying." You can read the full letter to parents here.
Williamsville School Superintendent Dr. Scott Martzloff said, "I can't tell [parents] specifically the specific actions we're taking with specific children. What I can tell you, in situations where serious bullying takes place, we will respond with the strictest consequences we can, we will cooperate fully with the Amherst Police Department, and we will do everything we can to deter this type of behavior from taking place on our school grounds."
"That is what we're looking for. That is what we'd like. Or we're working on expulsion, or we've suspended the students. You could even be politically correct and say, 'For their own safety.' But, let us know. What's the plan?" said Gestwick.
Michelle Fried has a child at Williamsville North. She believes this is a time for everyone to come together.
Fried said, "No one should blame the school, but we should all work together and working to educate our children to tolerate all people."
Gestwick did get a call from the school superintendent late Wednesday afternoon and told News 4 that after the conversation, he understands that the school is limited by law on what information can be put out there about specific incidents. Gestwick said he does feel better after the conversation and feels comfortable the school is taking action against bullying.
