A male teacher was removed from a kindergarten classroom at Lassen Elementary School in North Hills for "inappropriate behavior," parents learned in a letter that was sent home from Principal Dana Carter, KTLA reports. The teacher, whose name hasn't been released, was moved to a non-teaching facility after the allegations came to light, according to NBC Los Angeles. The complaint against him was reportedly about physical contact that he had with a student.

In the letter, which was dated March 1, Carter wrote, "This letter is to inform you that an allegation has been made of inappropriate behavior involving a staff member...Upon receiving the information, the proper authorities were notified. As part of the investigation, the employee has been temporarily removed from the school."
