FAIRFIELD — A Solano County Superior Court Judge on Monday reissued the temporary restraining order that requires a 9-year-old to stay at least 2 yards away from a child who attends Rolling Hills Elementary School.
Parent Stephen Feudner, who has the court order against the 9-year-old Feudner said bullied his fourth-grader, told Judge David Power that he will have the Fairfield-Suisun School District superintendent served as part of an effort to notify the 9-year-old about the Solano Count Superior Court matter.
Feudner said Superintendent Kris Corey and other school district officials continue to say confidentiality requirements prohibit them from disclosing the name of the 9-year-old. The name is needed to serve the 9-year-old notice of the court order, which Feudner calls the first of its kind in the country.
“Nobody wants to touch it,” he said of trying without success to find an attorney interested in the case that returns June 2 to Solano County Superior Court.
“I’m trying to seek justice for my son,” said Feudner, who plans to talk to the Fairfield-Suisun school board when it meets May 22.
Feudner said school district officials are trying to keep bullying problems quiet and that Rolling Hills “is supposed to be the cream of the crop” among schools.
“They’re hoping I will go away like most parents,” he said of Fairfield-Suisun school officials. “I’m not going away.”
His son Brandon sat next to his father in court and said after the hearing that the 9-year-old named in the court order isn’t at Rolling Hills Elementary now.
“He won’t bully any more kids,” said Brandon Feudner.
Fairfield-Suisun school officials have said they can’t comment on the status of the 9-year-old and that the school district takes bullying seriously. A school official said last week that Fairfield-Suisun conducted a recent 2½-hour session about bullying.
Corey could not be reached Monday for comment.
Stephen Feudner said Monday that he’ll still seek a three-year restraining order even though the 9-year-old no longer attends Rolling Hills because the school district could allow the 9-year-old to return to the school.
Feudner spoke Monday about instructing his two sons that if they’re bullied physically to take a step back and tell the bully, “Don’t put your hands on me.” Then, if you’re punched, punch back three times as hard, Feudner said he told his sons.
“This is elementary school,” he said Monday. “A parent should not have to teach his children how to fight in elementary school.”
