RANDOLPH, Mass. (AP) — School officials say they have placed personnel on leave amid an investigation into allegations that elementary school students were mistreated in Massachusetts.
Randolph interim Superintendent Thea Stovell says in a letter sent to parents Friday officials received several complaints about the treatment of students in a classroom at John F. Kennedy Elementary School.
Stovell says the allegations are not sexual in nature, and are "deeply concerning." She says the district is taking prompt action to address them.
Both police and the state's Department of Children and Families are investigating.
Stovell declined to provide further details, citing the ongoing investigation.
