TOLEDO, Ohio — Ottawa Hills Local Schools Superintendent Adam Fineske sent out a letter to the district's parents on Sunday addressing allegations made against a district employee.

Fineske says the district is fully cooperating with the Ottawa Hills Police Department and is unable to discuss or share details of the investigation surrounding the employee. 

The Ottawa Hills Police Department tells WTOL an investigation was opened, but could not immediately provide further details.

The employee was placed on administrative leave as soon as the school district was notified of the allegations. He cannot enter school property or attend school events, the letter read.
