WEST RIDGE — Two employees from Dewitt Clinton Elementary School were returned to school Monday after being removed in September pending “allegations.”

A letter obtained by Block Club Chicago, dated Sept. 17, said two employees were removed in connection to the unspecified allegations. The letter was signed by Maureen Delgado, principal of Clinton Elementary, 6110 N. Fairfield Ave.

When Chicago Public Schools were asked for comment Monday, they said a second letter was sent to parents on Monday, saying both employees had been returned to school following an investigation.

“Based on the information learned in the Office of Inspector General’s investigation, at this time, the district has not found evidence of inappropriate behavior, and our staff members will be returning to Clinton,” the letter states.

CPS did not answer multiple follow-up questions. Delgado did not respond to requests for comment on Monday.

“Please know that CPS and Clinton have a zero-tolerance policy for any behavior that compromises student safety,” wrote Delgado in the letter. “This investigation was necessary to ensure that your student’s safety was being appropriately safeguarded.”

The letter to parents in September did not indicate if the allegations against the employees was sexual, but the letter did indicate a student was receiving support from the Office of Student Protections and Title IX.
