THE NATOMAS BUZZ | @natomasbuzz


A popular Inderkum High School drama and English teacher has been booked into the Sacramento County Jail on charges of alleged inappropriate conduct with one of her students.

Rebekah Cyr, 33, tonight turned herself in to authorities, according to Sacramento Police spokesperson Michele Gigante.

In an automated telephone message to Inderkum families tonight, Principal George Tapanes said, “It is with great sadness that I share with you that one of our teachers today was detained by Sacramento Police.”

Tonight’s arrest draws to a close a month-long investigation.

On Sept. 12 the Sacramento Police Dept. launched an investigation into allegations Cyr acted inappropriately toward a 17-year-old male student at Inderkum High School. Allegations were that Cyr made inappropriate advances and had unwanted communication with the victim.

Cyr was immediately placed on paid administrative leave while Natomas Unified School District officials and police investigated. Sex assault and child abuse investigators were assigned to the case.

On Oct. 10, investigator’s findings were forwarded to the Sacramento County District Attorney’s office and two misdemeanor warrants issued for Cyr’s arrest.

Tonight Cyr was arrested and booked into the Sacramento County Jail on misdemeanor charges of annoying or molesting a child and making annoying phone calls.

“It is very important as parents, teachers and staff at Inderkum High School that we treat children with the utmost care and respect,” PTSA president Robynne Rose-Haymer said. “There are many many people in the world who seek to damage children and being part of school community should put us outside of that group. We should be working beyond hard to ensure that their experience is without spot or wrinkle.”
