SAN ANTONIO, Texas (AP) — Officials say a San Antonio elementary school teacher is on leave after being accused of putting transparent tape over a first-grader's mouth.

Danny Kelly says his daughter was afraid to tell him about what happened the day before winter break.

But he says her classmates at Schertz Elementary told their parents, who called the principal.

District spokeswoman Rebecca Villarreal says officials put the teacher on administrative leave as soon as the taping was reported. An investigation is ongoing.

Villarreal says the district takes "all incidents like this very seriously."
