The school district said they can't comment on the specifics of the arrest, but said "the safety and well-being of students and staff is and will always be the first priority."

Leslie said that students and staff members weren't ever placed in harm's way.

"Please be advised that the school district took immediate action as soon as the district learned of the investigation concerning the substitute’s alleged actions," Leslie said in a statement.
