The district was notified by the authorities of the individual’s arrest this morning, with the directive that more specific communication could only take place following arraignment which is anticipated to take place within the next few days. We do not have any reason to believe, at this time, that the allegations and charges involve any Northville student.
Upon learning of these serious allegations, the teacher was placed on administrative leave, pending our review of the situation and completion of the criminal process. We are fully cooperating with law enforcement and guided by their directives relating to information we may release and any other steps that may be taken to ensure student safety.
Once the arraignment takes place, and we are able to communicate more specific information, we will do so to the extent permitted by law. Please know that we recognize that it is difficult to receive limited information. We are mindful of keeping health and safety of all students at the forefront, while also respecting the privacy and due process rights of those involved. As in any serious matter, our primary concern is for the safety, health and well-being of our students, staff and families, and assure you that we will put support systems in place as necessary or appropriate as information becomes available.
Thank you, as always, for your understanding, as we work collectively with you, and our community partners to meet the needs of our students, our staff, and our families.
