The district said it learned of the accusations against Lyons Oct. 17 and removed him from his bus route. Lyons resigned from the district Oct. 20. A judge issued the warrant for his arrest Nov. 8.
Lanier High School Principal Christopher Martin informed families of students who rode Lyons’ bus that he was arrested and accused of “inappropriate contact with several students on the bus.”
“I want to reassure you we acted swiftly to investigate and address this situation. As soon as we were made aware of the allegations, we immediately contacted school police and the district’s Human Resources Division,” Martin said.
Lyons was released on bond. Court documents show his last appearance was Nov. 11. His next date in court has not yet been posted.
