“If true, this is a reprehensible violation of an educator’s responsibility to students. Betraying a child’s trust is outrageous,” said Susan Hull, school superintendent. “We urge law enforcement to take the strongest possible action as soon as possible.”
Perez is accused of having an improper relationship with Botton. The pair ran off around Thursday, likely in a 2011 black Toyota Camry, license plate CS8-G465, or a 2014 grey Toyota Camry, license plate DDP-1381.
