The principal at Arlington Catholic High School has been put on leave pending the outcome of an investigation, various media outlets are reporting, citing school officials.

In a note sent to parents Wednesday, Feb. 3, Vice Principal Linda Butt said the decision about Stephen Biagioni stems from allegations that took place after a Sunday detention at the school.

"We have no reason to believe at this time it involves allegations of sexual abuse," the letter said.

Biagioni has been a longtime administrator at the school. and students who spoke to FOX25 expressed shock.

The school said it would update the community once the investigation was finished.

Capt. Richard Flynn, who handles public information for Arlington police, told YourArlington: "As of this time, the Arlington Police Department has received no reports of abuse or allegations of any kind regarding Principal Biagioni.

"This appears to be an internal matter at ACHS, so I ask that you please refer your questions regarding this to ACHS."
