PRESS RELEASE #2

Contact: Kristi Teall, Superintendent, St. Louis Public Schools

Telephone: 989-681-2545

 

At approximately 4:30 PM this afternoon, the teacher who was recently placed on paid leave pending investigation and review by our District, submitted his resignation, effective immediately. Out of respect for all concerned, given the resignation of the teacher, we will make no further comment; future inquiries should be directed to law enforcement.

 

It is a testament to our staff and student body that during this very atypical situation, our focus has remained on academic excellence and our students’ many accomplishments and activities. We share multiple Points of Pride that bring us together, that are not undermined by a single incident.

 

As we await graduation and our traditional year-end activities preceding summer vacation, our entire school community looks forward to a strong close to what has otherwise been a great school year.

PRESS RELEASE

One of our teachers is currently on a paid administrative leave due to a pending investigation of an alleged inappropriate relationship with a district student.  At this time, we cannot further comment on details of the investigation due to the pendency of the matter.

As a public school district, our most important work is to protect the safety and well-being of our students.  As a result, when unusual allegations of this nature are made, we take prompt action to protect our students.  There are no circumstances in which an inappropriate relationship is acceptable;  our Board policy is clear and our staff is advised each year that they may not date our students or become romantically involved with our students.  Of course, sexual conduct between a teacher and student, if proven, is completely wrong in all circumstances.

We are and have been fully cooperating with law enforcement.  Immediately upon learning of the suspected conduct, we placed the teacher on paid leave out of school. 

We have faith that the criminal justice system will take appropriate action.  Out of respect for our student, we are maintaining the privacy of our student’s identity and we ask that our school community refrain from speculation and discussion about this atypical incident.  We want our students and staff to remain focused on continuing the positive academic strides we have made this year, as well as enjoying year-end activities, such as graduation, with the best interests of our students in mind.

Our complete support is being offered to our student and the student’s family, to assist them in dealing with the alleged conduct.  We strive to make sure that all of our students know and understand that staff are prohibited from engaging in any activities with students that cross the boundaries of propriety and professionalism.  At the same time, one teacher’s conduct should not in any way detract from the excellent work and outstanding level of dedication, commitment and high ethical standards demonstrated every day by our quality teaching staff and educators.

Relay for Life ~ NHS
Help us Hunt for a Cure!  Being in an organization such as National Honor Society,  we feel that it is important to serve the community in any way that we can. With the Relay for Life of Gratiot County, our club has the opportunity to walk and fundraise to help aid cancer research. In addition to walking for the event, NHS members will be selling luminary bags for $10 to be decorated and then put around the track for the event in August. These bags are an excellent way to honor a loved one that has passed away, has survived cancer, or still is battling with any form of cancer. We will also be selling small, purple feet for $1 which will be placed around the senior hallway in the high school. In addition, this is a community event, and we want to encourage you and your family to come out anytime during this 24-hr event, beginning August 12th at 3pm at Alma High School, to walk a lap or two, visit the booths and activities, or just show your support for finding a cure!  If you are interested in supporting this effort, both of these donations are greatly appreciated and it is an excellent way to show support for a great cause.  You can contact Mrs. Beery or Mrs. Dubridge at the High School, or visit relay.acsevents.org, click on the donate button, and donate to our team:  SLHS National Honor Society.  Thank you!
