    From: https://www.facebook.com/LeoniaBOE/posts/304476004521025

    Dr. Bertolini’s full weekly report will be out this afternoon. In the meantime, please see the following statement from Dr. Bertolini regarding the recent news.
    To the LHS Community:

    Yesterday we were alerted to a very serious legal issue involving one of our LHS staff members. Since this is an ongoing police matter we are currently restricted to what we can disclose. This is very sad and troubling news to our entire school community. We ask that our entire school community be mature and respectful of all involved in this situation. Due to the sensitive nature of the matter we are reminding everyone to continue to be respectful and refrain from making commentary via social media on this difficult situation. It is important to remember that members of our school community have been impacted and can be further impacted by insensitive commentary on social media. I remind everyone to, “Give Respect to Get Respect”.

    Thank you,
    Mr. Chuck Kalender
