At the same time, almost one-third of parents say they don't know their child's school's COVID-19 safety plan, and 60% say they'd like to know about the measures their school is taking to keep kids safe.

They say the school knew about the bullying and failed to protect their son .

MONROE, La. – A school in Louisiana is being sued by a couple who say their son was the victim of severe bullying over the past year, allegations the school denies.

The suit alleges several of the student's peers organized an event called "Hell Day" on May 13 at Cedar Creek School in Ruston, located about an hour east of Shreveport. Organizers were encouraging each other to "bully him at least once," per an online post. On the day of the incident, the student was chased around the school and put into a headlock by multiple students.

Starting eight months prior, the lawsuit claims, the student experienced "verbal insults, physical assaults and sexual battery" weekly. Additionally, the lawsuit alleges the school was aware of ongoing bullying but failed to "implement any effective intervention" to stop it.

Parents of students the plaintiffs allege bullied their son are also named defendants in the suit.

Cedar Creek's Head of School Andrew Yepson said the school denies all allegations made in the lawsuit and is deciding how to proceed. The school is debating filing a counter lawsuit for libel and defamation.

"The allegations raised in the lawsuit were investigated by Cedar Creek as soon they were brought to our attention in May 2021," Yepson said. "Based on school policy, we took disciplinary action against several individual students."

Additionally, Yepson said the school created an anonymous hotline for anyone to report bullying or any inappropriate behavior.

"We remain committed to ensuring that Cedar Creek provides a safe, secure environment for all students," Yepson said. "Bullying, harassment, intimidation, stalking, and similar actions have no place in our school community and will not be tolerated."

The plaintiffs' names are not included because the case involves a minor.
