Former Happy Camp High School Principal arrested on suspicion of sexual abuse
HAPPY CAMP, Calif. —
Former Happy Camp High School Principal, Steve Van Ert, has been arrested on suspicion of sexual abuse, according to a letter sent out by Siskiyou Union High School District Superintendent Mike Matheson.
Matheson said they learned of the arrest on Friday, just five days after the district accepted Van Ert's resignation.
Van Ert had been on leave from his position since December 2017.
Matheson added to the district's knowledge, the allegations are unrelated to Van Ert's employment with the district.
