Allegations made about a teacher at Blair High School have led the district to ban the teacher from campus until the matter is resolved.

Blair Superintendent Randy Gilson, in a statement released Thursday, said the school administration is "working to address these allegations."

"The school administration will take appropriate action to address the situation and protect our students from harm. Safety is and always will be our first priority."

Until the matter is resolved, he wrote, "the teacher in question will not be on school grounds."

Specific information about the allegations and the name of the teacher have not been released.
