"Dear Parents:

On Monday, October 22, I was made aware of an allegation that one of our students was having an improper relationship with a teacher.  I immediately called the Bell County Sherriff’s Office to report this so they could investigate the allegation. 

The teacher which was allegedly involved in an inappropriate relationship has resigned and is no longer employed by the district.  We are fully cooperating with the Bell County Sherriff’s Office throughout this process.

As both the superintendent and a parent of two students in our district, I take any allegations of misconduct very seriously.  The safety of our students is our top priority.

Best Regards,

Michael Novotny


Salado ISD"
