An elementary school teacher in Wisconsin was arrested and accused of sexually assaulting a student.

Madison Bergmann, 24, is charged with first-degree child sex assault, online court records indicate.

KARE 11, CBS News and KSTP report that Bergmann is accused of texting the 11-year-old alleged victim “almost daily,” citing charging documents. KARE reported that authorities alleged the texts contained messages about “making out.”

CBS reported that a search of Bergmann’s backpack also allegedly revealed a folder with the boy's name on it containing handwritten notes they would allegedly write to each other during the school day.

It is not immediately clear if Bergmann has retained an attorney or entered a plea.

The Hudson School District sent out a reported statement to parents of students in the district.
