CONSTANTINE, Mich. (AP) - A southwestern Michigan kindergarten teacher who was suspended with pay while officials investigated a report that two 5-year-old boys engaged in sex play in a classroom has been cleared.

Constantine Public Schools initially notified parents of the matter earlier this month. Constantine police investigated the report from Eastside Elementary School. WLKM-FM and WWMT-TV say the instructor resumed teaching duties Monday and there is no criminal negligence on her part.

The matter came to light Nov. 27 when several parents contacted the southwestern Michigan school. The two boys are temporarily out of the classroom.

MLIve.com reports the school also has reorganized the classroom so that students are visible at all times and brought in an additional classroom aide.
