Lafayette police are investigating an incident reportedly involving an employee at Temple Isaiah preschool and a child there. The nature of the incident was described as “inappropriate conduct” between employee and child.
No further explanation was given.
Few people appeared willing to discuss the situation publicly Thursday. The unidentified employee has reportedly been asked to stay away from the school and is on leave while police seek to determine the exact nature of the allegation.
In a message issued by the school to parents with children in attendance, administrators of the Risa Rd. facility wrote:
“We take the allegation very seriously, but it is important to understand that the investigation is in the very preliminary stages; no charges have been filed. We ask that all of you respect the ongoing process and refrain from speculation or spreading unfounded rumors.”
