"To those young boys and their parents, we sincerely apologize for the pain and anxiety these allegations have caused," the Allen family said. "To the administrators and families of Immanuel Christian School, we are sorry for the damage this incident has done to trust within the school family and the undue scorn it has brought to the school. To the broader community, who rallied in such passionate support for our daughter, we apologize for betraying your trust."
