ASHLAND, OH- An alleged "Hazing" incident that took place at Mapleton High School last week has the Ashland County Sheriff's Office and the Mapleton Local School District looking into the incident. 

According to a press release sent out by the Mapleton Local School District, the district cannot provide information regarding allegations against specific students or any actions the Board of Education has taken toward specific students because of federal law protections. However, the Board of Education prohibits all hazing activities.

If a district employee has received information that hazing has, will, or might occur, the students who are alleged to be involved are informed that hazing is prohibited and directed not to engage in hazing.

Additionally, if the district receives a complaint that hazing has or might occur, the allegations of hazing are promptly investigated and addressed, including, but not limited to, appropriate disciplinary action.

The Board of Education said it takes seriously its obligation to safeguard student safety and respond to any hazing concerns that are brought to its attention.
