Letter to Parents

Dear District Parents and Guardians, 


Following recent allegations of misconduct, the Princeton City School District immediately placed a Princeton Community Middle School staff member on administrative leave and contacted local law enforcement. 


All protocols are being followed and law enforcement is conducting a full investigation into this matter. Princeton is cooperating with law enforcement in the investigation, along with conducting a separate internal investigation. 

We take all allegations very seriously and we hold everyone accountable to the code of conduct expected in our schools. The well-being and safety of our students are top priorities of Princeton City Schools and under no circumstances does the district condone or tolerate inappropriate conduct. We will continue to cooperate fully with law enforcement and will take appropriate action consistent with the law and district policy in handling this matter.

Because this is an ongoing investigation and out of respect for all involved, the district is very limited in these circumstances in what legally can be communicated; however, I can commit to you that we will be as open and honest as we can throughout this entire process. 


Tom Burton
