EA, Strongsville Patch was the first news outlet to report on the custodian incident. We had the story on Monday, as soon as we found out about it. This article is a wrap-up of news from the week; if you click the link, it takes you to the full story. As for the follow-up, the school district and police are still investigating. The investigation is expected to be done some time this week.

Ea Debbie is correct I read about this earlier in the week. The patch is one of the few places left that report the news ....not interpret the news
