We know there are bullies at school but who knew there were bullies at School Committee meetings.

According to a police report filed by Everett Police Patrolman Stephen Ramunno, who was working as the School Resource Officer for the Everett Public Schools on Monday, June 5, at approximately 6:45 p.m. an individual was allegedly accosting several individuals, including school board member Jason Marcus and EPS Facilities Director Robert Moreschi at the School Committee meeting in the EHS library. According to the officer’s report, he was informed by Marcus and Moreschi that a man identified as Brian Sylvain had allegedly accosted Marcus while outside the library where the School Committee meetings are held, approaching Marcus and verbally abusing him with expletives because he didn’t vote to approve Supt. of Schools Priya Tahiliani’s contract, stating, “You better watch out, you piece of s__t.”

The school Facilities Director also told police that Sylvain approached him inside the library and, after allegedly calling him, “one of the mayor’s cronies,” allegedly asked him to “step outside” as he was walking towards the seats in the audience.

Responding officers were called to the library and, according to the report, Sylvain got up from his seat and again approached Moreschi, “telling him to go outside.” Sylvain was immediately escorted from the library and the school grounds, and he was informed that he was trespassed indefinitely from all Everett Public School buildings and events.
