“As with all of our staff, it's gut wrenching," he said. "I mean these are people that are part of our family. I know the staff in this community and it doesn't matter who it would be, I would feel the same way."
RCMP say the offences are alleged to have occurred between March 2013 and September 2014. A complaint was laid against Middlesteadt on Monday after the complainant came forward to a female teacher.
