The principal at Fontenelle Elementary is on administrative leave. Families received a letter late Tuesday afternoon saying Eric Nelson is out on leave.
The letter did not disclose details as to why Nelson was placed on leave. Families were told that Executive Director of School Support and Supervision Scott Sturgeon will be supporting the school while Nelson is gone.
There is no official comment on whether Nelson's leave is connected to the teacher's arrest. Due to privacy issues the letter said no other information can be shared.
The leave comes a week after first grade teacher Gregory Sedlacek was arrested for assaulting a 7-year-old female student .
A prosecutor said Sedlacek had a list of girls he also allegedly sexually assaulted while teaching at Sacred Heart and Red Cloud Elementary in South Dakota as well.
