NEW ROCHELLE, NY — New Rochelle Schools Superintendent Dr. Laura Feijóo announced in a letter dated Monday, December 2nd that she had “reassigned” Business teacher Marin Grzan, for unspecified reasons.
In the letter, addressed to parents of students assigned to his business classes, Feijóo said Grzan would be suspended from teaching “for the foreseeable future.￼
Grzan is the third teacher “reassigned” by Feijóo in the past three weeks.
On November 13th, Feijóo reassigned former head football coach Lou DiRienzo after his involvement in an incident where a drunk student left the school without going through proper channels and Isaac E. Young Middle School teacher Eric Luczkowski.
Talk of the Sound was the first report that both DiRienzo and Luczkowski were under police investigation.
On November 20th, New Rochelle Police Deputy Commissioner Robert Gazzola told Talk of the Sound:
“On November 14, 2019, we were contacted by the principal of Isaac E. Young middle school (Tawanda Robinson) regarding a report from a 13 year-old female student who alleged that a teacher (Luczkowski) inappropriately touched her leg while at school on Oct. 31, 2019.”
On November 26th, Yonkers Police Department spokesperson Dean Politopoulos told Talk of the Sound:
“We do have an open investigation regarding a complaint alleged to have occurred in the late 1980’s. Due to the age of the victim at that time, no other information will be released pending further investigative progress.”
The next day, Politopoulos told Talk of the Sound:
“Last week the Yonkers Police initiated an investigation into allegations brought forward by a former local high school student, alleging unlawful contact between the student and a former coach / teacher; the incidents are alleged to have occurred in the late 1980’s. Due to the nature of the allegations and the amount of time elapsed, any potential criminal charges would not be eligible for prosecution. The Yonkers Police Department has a responsibility to our constituents and all involved parties to investigate these allegations and afford due process and impartiality to the same; as such, no further information will be released at this time.”
