MADISON HEIGHTS, Mich. (WXYZ) - Madison Heights Police say they are investigating a report of inappropriate conduct between a staff member of Bishop Foley High School and a student.
The name of the staff member has not been released.
Officials say a report was filed on Friday, May 16 by the student's parents and the school's president.
Police say the investigation is in the preliminary stages and it is expected to involve multiple jurisdictions.
They also say that because of the state of the investigation and because the student is a juvenile, no further information will be released at this time.
The school has not officially commented.
However, The Archdiocese of Detroit issued the following statement about the situation:
A letter was mailed Tuesday to parents of students at Bishop Foley High School in Madison Heights, indicating that the school had received allegations of misconduct against a Bishop Foley staff member involving a student. The allegations were immediately reported to law enforcement authorities. The staff member allegedly involved is no longer at Bishop Foley High School.
Because the matter has been turned over to law enforcement authorities, the school and the archdiocese are unable to give any further details. We will continue to cooperate with law enforcement on the matter.
Providing a safe, Christian environment for students is at the very core of what it means to be a Catholic school. Whatever the details or outcome, such allegations are disconcerting and are treated with the utmost seriousness.
