Constantine teacher on paid leave

​A teacher at Eastside Elementary in Constantine is on paid leave as a procedural measure while the Constantine Police Department conducts an investigation at the school.

​Superintendent Chuck Frisbie said he wasn’t at liberty to elaborate on the matter while the investigation remains active. He did say a 90-minute meeting took place privately with about 15 parents Monday night.

​Constantine Village Manager Mark Honeysett said police Chief Jim Bedell and officer Holly Cerny are heading up the investigation and is the result of a matter reported last week.

​Both Frisbie and Honeysett said the investigation will likely follow a slow pace because it involves interviewing children at the kindergarten-through-second-grade school, as well as the parents of at least two 5-year-old boys.
