On Thursday, December 14, 2017, a former Winston-Salem/Forsyth County School volunteer, Jennifer Anne Pike, was charged with felony sex offenses with a student. Pike’s status as a volunteer was suspended when school officials learned of the investigation earlier this school year. We will continue to work with law enforcement through this investigation and always take allegations concerning the safety and well-being of our students seriously. We encourage parents to make us aware of any situation that concerns them.
