SAN ANTONIO - The San Antonio Independent School District placed an athletic coordinator at Sam Houston High School on leave while the district investigates allegations from two students of "inappropriate communications."

District spokeswoman Leslie Price told the athletic coordinator was put on leave Monday while Human Resources and the SAISD police investigate the allegations against the employee.

In a letter sent to parents Tuesday, Principal Dr. Mateen Diop said they take the type of incident "very seriously (and) student safety is a top priority at SAISD schools."
