BUTLER TOWNSHIP -- "An allegation of concern involving an employee and a student."
That's pretty much all the information parents in the North Schuylkill School District know about an incident at the district near Ashland.
That message to parents was from school administrators in Schuylkill County, but it didn't have any details about what may have happened.
District officials said they found out about whatever happened between an employee and student late last week. The investigation is in now the hands of Butler Township Police.
Dr. Robert Ackell, the superintendent of the North Schuylkill School District said, "The students' safety and welfare is our top priority here at North Schuylkill."
We do know at the school district's board meeting last night, administrators approved the resignation of Melinda Trezise, an elementary school teacher. Her resignation is effective immediately, but officials will not say if she was the employee involved.
"My kindergartener has no idea what's going on and I was a little nervous at work," said Timothy Jackson of Frackville.
Many parents said that they do understand why more information wasn't released, but they also said they eventually want all the information and they want it soon.
"We don't have answers. The only answers we have is pretty much social media, which are all rumors," said Jackson.
That's what parents say makes it even worse, because they don't know how to talk to their kids about what's happening since the parent's don't know either. Instead, it's just a lot of hearsay.
"I've heard through the grapevine, this occurred, that occurred, but you can't say for sure," said Joseph Kessler of Girardville.
Even with all the questions, district officials still said they wanted to give what little information they had to the families.
"We wanted to be upfront with the community and even though they are only allegations, we thought it was the appropriate thing to do to get the word out there," said the superintendent.
No one has been charged with any crime at this time and Butler Township Police are still investigating what even happened.
However, there is another North Schuylkill school board meeting on May 20 at 7 p.m.
