MARTINSVILLE —Two school administrators and one teacher were placed on leave Friday in the MSD of Martinsville, although the reasons why remain unclear.

Jayne Burke, director of community relations for MSD of Martinsville, provided an updated statement Monday that said only one administrator remains on leave.

“Our focus for the investigation is to work thoroughly and in fairness to all parties,” read the statement. “To do so, we may choose to place persons on leave, but that does not automatically imply guilt. It ensures for us that optimal fact-finding and privacy are maintained.”

Burke said the investigation does not include any alleged interaction between any student and staff member.

She declined to comment because “this is a personnel investigation.”

Parents have received the following emails about the situation as well:
