An elementary school custodian who spent the weekend in jail after neighbors accused him of exposing himself to a child has been relocated within the district, away from children, pending an administrative review, according Broward County Public Schools.
The word went out to parents at Country Hills Elementary Monday in a letter explaining the school's head custodian, Mr. Mark, was no longer allowed on campus.
The details, they learned from reporters.
"Oh my God, I don't what to think. I'm just praying," said Miriam Tarler, a parent whose child attends the school.
Mark Lynn, 55, was arrested Saturday night after a 12-year-old neighbor allegedlyspotted him walking naked outside his Coral Springs townhome.
"It was all dark outside and I saw this light and I looked at it and there was a naked man there," the victim said.
She ran to tell her mother, who says Lynn didn't flinch when he realized he'd been spotted.
"And he would proceed to go in and out of his house, four or five times, completely naked. He would stand at the end of his little curb there staring at our house completely naked," said the victim's mother, who did not want to be identified.
Coral Springs police charged Lynn with indecent exposure and notified the school district when they learned he works with kids.
Superintendent Robert Runcie says Lynn was immediately reassigned to a facility where there are no children.
"I think the district has taken appropriate action. We have to ensure that every adult that is around our students are individuals that we have don't have any particular concerns about," Runcie said.
At this point there's nothing to indicate that Lynn has acted inappropriately at school. Parents in his neighborhood say they'll call police if he acts that way at home again.
