LITTLE FALLS, N.J.- Earlier this morning, one of Passaic Valley High School’s business teachers was put on administrative leave with pay until the end of the school year.

According to sources, the teacher was in his first period class when he received a call to head to the office.

Sources have told TAPInto that students were later escorted out of the classroom, where it was closed off and no one was allowed access to the room. Sources said police were at the school and they reportedly went into the classroom where they confiscated a computer and safe.
