OREGON, Wis. (AP) - The principal of a Madison-area high school is on administrative leave after her third arrest on suspicion of drunken driving in the past month.

Parents of Oregon High School students were informed in a letter Monday that principal Kelly Meyers was put on leave while a district investigation is conducted. Police in Fitchburg and Oregon have arrested her three times, authorities confirmed to the Wisconsin State Journal (http://bit.ly/1CASYGP ).

Meyers had been on medical leave prior to being put on administrative leave. She has yet to appear in court on the driving charges.

Oregon School Board president Dan Krause says the district acted as soon as it learned about the arrests. He says further decisions will be made after the investigation.

Meyers has been the school’s principal since 2012.
