The Assistant Principal at Washington-Irving Middle School in Harrison County remains on suspended leave with pay as of Tuesday night, after the county's board of education meeting. Members said due to an ongoing investigation, and the fact that no new information has been presented to them, things are at a stand still.
 
The Harrison County Board of Education President said there are certain procedures they must take when things like this happen, so they're making sure they cross their t's and dot their i's.

Last time the board met earlier this month, a sea of yellow shirts took over the room. Those backing the vice principal wore those shirts again Tuesday night. They read "We Support Scott Hage". Hage was arrested after an incident with a student inside the school cafeteria late February. It was caught on tape by a surveillance camera. Hage has been charged with felony child abuse or neglect creating risk of injury.
 
"We don't have any information on what happened, the names of the students, the names of the witnesses, or anything else. There is a process in place and we're going to let that process take it's course," said board president Mike Queen.
 
In other board of education business, Monday's snow caused Harrison County Schools to close, making educators change their plans on when students will be out for the summer. The last day of classes will now be June 4th.
 
Board president Mike Queen told us he would like to see a PRO Officer in Salem Elementary before school starts in August because a medium-security adult prison will soon be functioning in Salem. He said there has been a lot of assurances from the Governor's office that actions will be taken to ensure the kids remain safe.
