2 Rapid City-area elementary school principals suspended

RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - Principals at two Rapid City-area elementary schools have been suspended for undisclosed reasons.

Rapid City Area Schools spokeswoman Katy Urban confirmed to the Rapid City Journal that principals at Black Hawk Elementary and Valley View Elementary have been placed on paid administrative leave pending an investigation by school district officials.

She declined to comment on the reasons, calling it a "personnel matter." She did say there was no threat to student safety.

Urban says the investigations are expected to be completed this week.
