INDEPENDENCE, Mo. (AP) - Officials say a substitute teacher won’t be allowed back into an Independence district classroom until an investigation into accusations he hit several third-graders finishes.

Independence schools spokeswoman Jana Corrie said the substitute teacher was asked to leave after allegations surfaced that he struck and shoved several students at Spring Branch Elementary last week.

Corrie says the school’s principal has notified the Missouri Division of Family Services. She adds the principal has spoken to students in the classroom and to the parents of each child.
