DELL RAPIDS, S.D. (AP) - A student has obtained a protection order against a high school band teacher in Dell Rapids who apparently has since been put on leave.

Court documents say the teacher sent sexually explicit messages to the female student via Facebook last month. A judge granted the student a protection order.

The teacher has not been charged with a crime. KSFY-TV reports that a Feb. 9 hearing is scheduled on whether the protection order will be extended.

The Argus Leader newspaper went to the teacher’s home for comment and was referred to the school district. KSFY-TV reports that the school district on Wednesday sent a voicemail to parents about “an alleged improper incident involving a school district employee and student,” saying the employee has been placed on leave.
