Verdigris Police Investigating Possible Physical Abuse at Elementary School

Posted: Updated:

Verdigris authorities are looking into allegations involving a teacher physically abusing students.

Verdigris Police Department told KTUL that officers received word this week that a teacher at Verdigris Lower Elementary had been physically abusing students.

VPD's Jack Shackelford said that one particular incident began the investigation. Officers are now conducting interviews among school faculty and turning over the case to the Rogers County District Attorney's office for further action.

An official with Verdigris Public Schools confirmed the investigation. But could not give any more details due to school regulations.

More information is expected to be released later this week.
