KIRKWOOD, Mo. -- Six teachers at a suburban St. Louis high school are being disciplined for violation of the district's drug-free workplace and staff conduct policies.
The Kirkwood School District says the incident involving Kirkwood High School teachers occurred Friday and no students were involved. District spokeswoman Ginger Fletcher says the drug-free policy prohibits employees from using or possessing alcohol or controlled substances on campus. She says no illegal drugs were involved, but declined to discuss further details.
The teachers are suspended with pay, but the district is not saying for how long except to say they will return by the time the school year ends on May 24.
