A Hebrew preschool in Northwest Washington, D.C., is accused of ignoring signs that one of its teachers was sexually abusing children.

The Washington Post reports several parents filed a lawsuit against the Washington Hebrew Congregation school on Monday. The lawsuit says the teacher took at least seven 3- and 4-year-old children to remote areas on campus and sexually abused them.

It says the abuse happened for more than a year, though complaints of inappropriate behavior were brought to school officials soon after his hiring in March 2016.
