GUSD Statement on Solis

May 09, 2024 04:58PM ● By Seti Long

GRIDLEY, CA (MPG) – After former Sycamore Middle School teacher Michelle Solis was found guilty of felony counts of sexual relations with a minor student, the Herald reached out to Gridley Unified School Districts Superintendent, Justin Kern, for a statement.

Kern told the Herald the following:

“The Gridley Unified School District as well as the Gridley community are deeply saddened by the criminal behavior involving one of our former educators. While the legal process has a start and end, there is no timetable on working through the damage and emotional fallout of the choices made by this individual. As I have stated previously, I am heartbroken to have to address a situation of this gravity, as once in a lifetime is once too many. Such actions unnecessarily undermine and erode confidence in our institutions and with the hard-working staff that perform their duties above reproach on a daily basis. Throughout the past few years, we've confronted various trials (flood, fire, virus, suicide) while upholding and supporting one another.”

Kern continued, “We have maintained our resiliency for the benefit of the children and families we serve, and this will continue despite the egregious behavior of the accused. I know this incident has created a host of emotions within our educational community, but we will persevere. We remain committed to providing a safe and supportive environment for all students, staff, and families and we will steadfastly prioritize the well-being of all of those within our sphere of care. Finally, I want to be clear that GUSD will continue to focus our attention and energy on those that are part of the amazing team moving us forward, rather than on the incomprehensible actions of one person.”

 

Solis faces sentencing on June 6 at the Butte County Superior Courthouse.
