A female employee of South San Francisco High School was arrested Monday afternoon following an investigation into alleged sexual misconduct with at least one youth, police said Tuesday.

Early last week, police were notified of the alleged misconduct by 31-year-old Richmond woman Noelia Linares.

In an e-mail sent out to the South San Francisco High School community, Superintendent Shawnterra Moore said they were working closely with SFPD to conduct an investigation. 

"We took the appropriate initial disciplinary action, and placed the individual in administrative leave," said Moore. "While we are still learning about the circumstances surrounding the allegations, we are confident that no students are currently in danger." 

Police allege Linares, a paraprofessional at the school, behaved inappropriately with a 17-year-old student there.

After a weeklong investigation, Linares was arrested at 4:05 p.m. Monday. She was taken to the county jail.

Anyone with more information about the alleged misconduct is asked to call the Police Department at (650) 877-8900 or the anonymous tip line at (650) 952-2244.
