GREENSBORO, N.C. — A former Page High School employee is facing sex charges, according to a news release from Greensboro police.
Matthew Jonathan Rickard, 37, of Greensboro, is charged with three counts of sex acts with a student.
The incidents were reported to have happened between 2015 and 2017.
Guilford County Schools on Tuesday released the following statement, from Nora Carr, Chief of Staff:
“Student safety is very important to us and this kind of behavior will simply not be tolerated at Page High or in GCS. When we learned of these allegations in January, we immediately notified law enforcement and suspended the employee, who resigned on Friday. We also plan to notify the state officials so they can determine whether to revoke this individual’s teaching license.”
Rickard was given a $75,000 bond.
Anyone with information on this case is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (336) 373-1000.
