Lafayette police arrested a 22-year-old volleyball coach at Acalanes high school Friday for having an inappropriate relationship with a minor.
Daniel Kalustian of Martinez reportedly had a relationship with a female student for more than a year, according to the Contra Costa Times.
The Lafayette school chief sent the following letter to parents and guardians Friday afternoon:
I am writing to inform our Parent Community that the District learned that an Acalanes High School coach was arrested today with charges related to an inappropriate relationship and misconduct with a minor student from another school in the District.
The District was alerted to the possible misconduct of the 22 year-old coach, and he was immediately placed on administrative leave; thereafter, he resigned his position with the District. This individual served as a coach in the District and in no other capacity.
The District has extended support to the student and the family to assist them through this process.
We will continue to work with the Lafayette Police Department on this matter, and student safety will continue to be a top priority.
Should questions or concerns arise for your student, please contact a school counselor or administrator.
Sincerely, John Nickerson Superintendent
