CITRUS HEIGHTS, CA - Creative Frontiers, a private school in Citrus Heights, could be opening its doors again, despite serious concerns from some parents and a state agency.
The school was shutdown and it's licenses suspended in July, following child molestation allegations against principal Bob Adams dating back 15 years.
Parents of prospective and returning students at Creative Frontiers school gathered for an informational meeting Wednesday night.
The school's Facebook page said the meeting was to discuss questions from parents and plans regarding the upcoming school year.
One post indicated that the school would be opening Sept. 8. Another post said the school has been sold to the principal's son-in-law.
However, according to parents, the school is now supposed to start Sept. 12.
But, according to the Citrus Heights City Attorney, the school's business license will remain suspended and the school closed until the city believes the school is a safe place for children.
However, parents at the school meeting said there's nothing to worry about.
"I think these allegations are ridiculous," one parent, who didn't want to be identified, said.
"I don't feel the allegations are true," parent Calandra Glen said. "And if the preschool were to open up again, I don't have a problem putting my child there as well."
Adams has denied all allegations. He has not been arrested. Citrus Heights Police Department said investigation is still underway.
A call to Adam's attorney late Wednesday night was not returned.
