LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - A staff member at Amelia Earhart Elementary School is under investigation by the Lafayette Police Department.

Lafayette School Corporation Superintendent Les Huddle said the staff member is on administrative leave. Huddle sent out a letter to parents earlier this week.

The letter says, "The staff member has been reassigned to home during the investigation and will not be back at Earhart until all allegations and issues are resolved. The Lafayette School Corporation considers the safety of children it's top priority. "

Lt. Scott Galloway with the Lafayette Police Department said the case is still under investigation. Galloway couldn't release any names, the staff member's position or any of the allegations.
