MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – An employee at a magnet school in St. Paul is accused of inappropriate communications and actions involving a student.
Capitol Hill Gifted and Talented Magnet Principal Patrick Bryan sent a letter to families of the school Wednesday saying the school learned of the misconduct April 25. Bryan said the school contacted Saint Paul police and placed the employee on leave.
