ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Cherry Creek School Board met Monday night for the first time since the arrests of two employees on various sex crimes charges.

The district came under fire for failing to notify parents about one of the arrests for several months. During the meeting on Monday night, the board did not address the recent incidents but several parents spoke up during public comment.

"I cannot believe that over a four and half year period of assault no red flags were raised, that no child raised any questions, that no teachers raised any flags," said parent, Drew Patterson. "You have no right to hide any information from parents, no right at all." 

The criticism comes after the May arrest of Broderick Jerrod Lundie, a security guard working at the school, on charges of sex crimes. 

The arrest came to light after the arrest of Brian Vasquez, a Cherry Creek Schools middle school teacher, who was charged in August with sex crimes involving five students.
