ROCKY RIVER, Ohio (WOIO) - A Rocky River principal was placed on administrative leave after the school system says it was approached by Rocky River police.

An email sent to district parents from Superintendent Michael Shoaf Tuesday explained the school’s understanding of the situation.

The email says Kensington Intermediate School Principal Dr. Heath Horton has been placed on administrative leave effective immediately.

Police confirmed there is an ongoing investigation including Horton. It is unclear what the investigation entails.

School officials say District administrators will provide coverage at Kensington for the final two days of school.

“The district is fully cooperating with the RRPD on the investigation,” Shoaf said.
