Constantine Public Schools Superintendent Chuck Frisbie on Tuesday sent a letter to parents of Eastside Elementary students and provided general information about a police investigation at the Pre-K-through-second-grade school.
In the letter, Frisbie indicated the investigation centers on “incidents which may have occurred in a kindergarten classroom” at Eastside.
Frisbie said parents of children from the classroom in question were notified of the investigation Thursday last week, shortly after the matter was brought to the attention of school personnel.
For now, the students involved are not in their assigned classroom, pending the results of the investigation and at this time there is no reason to suspect other students at Eastside Elementary are involved, Frisbie wrote.
Frisbie said pending the investigation and according to district policy, the classroom teacher has been suspended with pay. There are no criminal concerns related to the teacher, Frisbie added.
