3 staff members of Killingly preschool program put on leave

KILLINGLY, CT (WFSB) -

Three staff members at a preschool in Killingly have been placed on administrative leave. 

Three staff members at the Goodyear Early Childhood Center were placed on leave without prejudice, pending the conclusion of an investigation, according to Superintendent Dr. Lynne Pierson. It's unclear what type of investigation is happening or if it involves any students.

Pierson would only say the employees were not put on leave at the same time and the three situations were "not" connected.

"Hopefully, we will be notified shortly on what's happening because you don't even know if it's your kid's teacher that's been put on administrative leave," David Kozey, whose daughter attends the Goodyear Early Childhood Center, said. 

One parent told Eyewitness News that she only found out about staff being on administrative leave at the school from social media. 

The Goodyear Early Childhood Center is a preschool program that is part of the Killingly Public School System.
