Boarding school investigation uncovers more abuse
WINDSOR — The Loomis Chaffee School says its investigation into past sexual misconduct by faculty members has uncovered more abuse.
The private boarding school commissioned an investigation in 2016 after uncovering what it said was the mishandling of credible allegations against several former teachers and faculty members.
School officials this week posted a letter on its website with the results of that investigation.
The school says it found evidence of sexual misconduct involving two faculty members from the 1980s and one from the mid-1940s who also was accused of misconduct at a Florida school. That faculty member has since died.
The letter includes an apology to the victims and a promise to protect students from future abuse. The school says it now has regular training sessions on boundary issues, sexual misconduct, and mandatory reporting.
The historic school has a 300-acre campus in Windsor, and counts among its graduates the late Governor Ella T. Grasso and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Chris Hedges.
