The RCMP are investigating after a kindergarten student was allegedly tied up in a school yard. Flin Flon School Superintendent Blaine Veitch says they investigated the incident and learned the child was dropped off at the school but left the playground with two other children who aren’t students there. He says when classes resumed they tried unsuccessfully to contact the parents. He says they checked the playground several times and the children weren’t visible. Veitch adds at approximately 2:40 when the afternoon recess period started the children returned to the playground and at that time there was a bit of an incident among the three boys and some of the older students intervened and brought the child to the office. He says the child didn’t appear hurt or upset and returned to his regular class for the rest of the afternoon.
The boy’s mother says some older kids tied her son to a goal post and hit him with a necklace chain. The investigation continues.
