Denver Public Schools and the Stedman Elementary administration said in a letter that the employee who is accused of making an African American child pick up feces will not be returning to the school district.
In a letter to parents, Principal Michael Atkins said the incident was brought to the school's attention on May 21.
Per district protocol, DPS launched an investigation. The results prompted the principal to announce in a letter that "Ms. Cortes" will not be returning to Stedman for the 2019-20 school year. The letter does not provide "Ms. Cortes'" first name.
"I want to thank the students and families who brought this matter to our attention," Atkins wrote in the letter to parents. "While we believe this was an isolated incident, we will continue to pursue measures to keep our students safe."
In a statement, DPS spokesperson Will Jones said DPS "is committed to providing a safe and healthy learning environment to all of our students."
"As soon as we were made aware of this allegation, Denver Public Schools immediately launched an investigation," Jones wrote.
When 9NEWS asked for details of the allegation or incident, Jones said, "The information as it is depicted on social media is generally accurate."
