OLATHE, Kan. -- FOX 4 is working to learn more about why a principal and assistant principal were suddenly let go at Oregon Trail Middle School in Olathe.

On Wednesday, FOX 4 asked the school district for specifics about the two departures, the district only said that it’s  a “personnel matter” which prevents them from saying more.

Right now, very little has been released about the departure of principal Dr. Anne Hawks, and assistant principal Steve Skoczek. However, FOX 4 has learned that the situation did not involve any students or any kind of financial concerns.

FOX 4 received a copy of a letter that went out to parents detailing the change in leadership:

FOX 4 reached out to several Oregon Trail parents who chose not to comment at this time.
