Update: Rob Armstrong, Superintendent of Sapulpa Public Schools, sent a message to parents after Sloan's arrest:

"Let me take a moment to express my heartfelt sadness for the events that have transpired this week. We are working tirelessly to investigate several serious allegations. While talking with many individuals, and small groups of people during the last 72 hours we wanted to take the time to send a general message to our entire community. Oklahoma Statutes prohibit a public body from releasing and/or discussing internal personnel investigations, including demotion, discipline, or resignations.

"We take the safety of our children very serious. We are all parents, grandparents, and neighbors. As a matter of standard practice, we will review our current policies and procedures to ensure best available practices are being followed. Please contact your school principal, or district administrators if you ever have information that we need to know about."

The story below appeared in Thursday's Tulsa World:

Sapulpa police arrested a school teacher after another faculty member allegedly discovered a social media conversation about using and selling heroin and pawning school property.

Police on Monday arrested Megan Sloan, 27, on allegations she was in possession of methamphetamine, heroin, prescription drugs, paraphernalia. She also is accused of pawning two tablet computers that belonged to the school.

Sloan, an elementary teacher, reportedly left her Facebook account open on another teacher's computer. The other teacher discovered a conversation in which Sloan was allegedly talking about heroin use and dealing drugs, according to a probable cause affidavit.

When asked by school administrators, Sloan allegedly admitted to possessing Xanax, selling two tablet computers and taking field trip money from students. 

During a cursory search of Sloan's purse, authorities allegedly found used and unused needles and syringes.

A Sapulpa police officer quietly removed her from the school and transported her to the police station, according to the affidavit. Sloan allegedly admitted again to officers that she had pawned the tablet computers, taken the field trip money and that "the substance inside the syringes was heroin," according to the affidavit.

Police state in the affidavit that Sloan was in possession of less than a half gram of methamphetamine, less than a quarter gram of heroin, and a prescription drug known as Suboxone, used to treat pain and opioid dependence.

She was booked into Creek County jail on three complaints of possession or purchasing a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a school, embezzlement and possession of drug paraphernalia.
