FARMINGTON – Police are nearly finished looking into the allegation Matt Jozokos, the principal of Farmington High School,  threatened a student last month, according to Police Chief Kevin Willey.

"The allegation is that Jozokos threatened a student in late December just prior to winter break,” Willey said in an e-mail. “The investigation is nearly complete, and after consultation with the Strafford County Attorney's office, is being forwarded to them for review.”

On Friday, Superintendent Steve Welford would not confirm whether Jozokos was placed on administrative leave or not, what actions have been taken in the district or when school officials learned of the incident.

“This is a personnel matter and I cannot comment further,” Welford said in an e-mail.

Farmington High School educates students from Farmington and Middleton.

Police Chief Kevin Willey said more information will soon be available.
