The Filer School District and the Filer Police Department are investigating allegations of inappropriate conduct involving three employees of the District.

In an e-mail from the Filer School District’s Human Resources spokeswoman Teresa Kullhem, the District first became aware of allegations on Monday evening. “The safety and well-being of our students is our top priority and we take these allegations seriously. The employees in question are on leave,” Kullhem wrote. 

“As soon as the District became aware of the situation, local law enforcement was contacted and the District opened an independent investigation of this matter. Everyone at the District is working closely with law enforcement and will do everything required to assist them with their investigation,” she added.

Just as the District has a responsibility to keep students safe, we also have a responsibility not to rush to judgment and risk inadvertently causing harm to any member of our school community,” the e-mail continued.

The District asked for “patience and understanding as the matter is investigated.” 

No further details were immediately available.
