FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live) - UPDATE: The West Fargo School Board accepted the resignation for Ron Thompson without any discussion.

Original story below:

A spokesperson with the West Fargo Public School District says on Tuesday, February 2nd, the West Fargo Police Department served a warrant to Ron Thompson, a teacher at Sheyenne and West Fargo High Schools.

After the meeting with police, Mr. Thompson submitted a letter of resignation, effective immediately. The School Board will take action on Mr. Thompson’s release at their regularly scheduled meeting on Monday, February 8th.

On Tuesday, a letter was also sent out from the West Fargo High School Principal Jenn Fremstad asking staff that if they see Mr. Thompson on campus or if he reaches out to any staff or students, to contact administration immediately.
