Clayton (KSDK)--Clayton High School principal Dr. Louise Losos has resigned.

According to a statement released by Clayton School District spokesperson Chris Tennill, the district and Dr. Losos had a "fundamental dispute concerning the appropriate use of social media."

Her last day is June 30th. However, Tennill says Dr. Losos will remain on a leave of absence for personal reasons for the remainder of the school year.

Meanwhile, Clayton parents say "Suzy Harriston" is the name on a Facebook page which may have led to Losos' resignation.  School district officials are not confirming that Losos created the page.  There is no longer a Facebook page connected to someone named Suzy Harriston.

Clayton parent Richard Nuell said, "Facebook is quite the epidemic and I'm concerned about my daughter's safety on Facebook.  I'm looking forward to finding out what the reason was and what the outcome will be of this investigation.  If she was just trying to do it for the safety of the children, or just what her reasons were."

In response to a reporter's question on Facebook, Clayton parent Andy Brown said, in part, "If the district is aware this allegation is true they should be up front and honest and clearly explain to parents what has happened. These are our children, that we entrusted to the care of Dr. Louise Losos. If she is guilty of these allegations it is our right to be informed. It was our children she was monitoring. Neither us or our kids ever gave any permission or authorization for Dr. Louise Losos to view and monitor their non-school related activities."

Dr. Losos has declined comment on the matter.
