STANFORD – Stanford Police were called to Stanford Elementary this morning to investigate an incident at the school last night involving an administrator.
Police have not released any details about the nature of the accident, but said in a news release Wednesday morning that they were called to investigate the school after school staff “noted signs of possible injury prior to the student’s arrival.”
Police said the accident happened around 11 p.m. and involved a school administrator, according to Lincoln County Communications Director Brad Smith.
Custodians were there during school cleaning hours, Smith said.
No other persons, staff or students were involved in the incident or were on the premises at the time.
The Stanford Police Department and Kentucky State Police responded to the school this morning and, as a precaution, cleared the building before children began their normal activities for the day.
“The school is deemed safe and there is no/no danger or threat to the safety of students or staff regarding this incident,” the release said. “The safety of our students and staff is a top priority and the school has never been deemed not safe.
The SPD said they had been in contact with the injured party, who left the scene minutes after the injuries and were being treated for “major but non-life-threatening injuries”.
Officers will be present at school throughout the day.
“The incident involving this staff member remains under investigation and no further information is available at this time,” the release said.
