A message to Kessler families:

Dear Parents and Families,

Earlier this week the school district was notified of an issue at Kessler Elementary. The incident occurred on Monday at recess between a para-educator and a student.

After being notified, a school district administrator immediately talked with the employee and a parent of the child. Based on the initial discussions, the district employee has been placed on administrative leave while an investigation is being conducted.

The district expects to complete the investigation sometime next week and is working in cooperation with local law enforcement on the issue.

The safety and security of our students and staff members is a top priority.

Respectfully,

 

Dr. Dan Zorn, Superintendent

Longview Public Schools
