The following is an email sent to Curtis Middle School parents from Superintendent Anne Wilson:
I am writing to inform you that Mr. Fardig, 8th Grade House Administrator, has been placed on paid administrative leave beginning today, October 11, 2012, pending an investigation into certain allegations. Please understand that state law prevents me from commenting further at this time due to the ongoing investigation of this personnel matter, but we can assure you that these allegations do not involve any threatened harm to students. Because the investigation is ongoing, we have made no final determination as to the merits of the allegations.
As always, the education, safety and well-being of students is our top priority and we will provide temporary administrative assistance for the school as needed. If you are the parent of an eighth grader, please contact Mr. Lambert with any questions or concerns regarding your student.
Anne S. Wilson
