Ipswich Principal: 22 Girls Targeted In Cyber Bullying Incident

IPSWICH (CBS) – Ipswich High School officials and police are trying to find out who sent out a weekend e-mail targeting some female students.

The e-mail went out Sunday through the Facebook page set up for next month’s junior prom and singled out specific girls.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Mark Katic reports.

“Somebody had sent an e-mail through their Facebook page, at least that’s the way I understand it, indicated that, for those who might be looking for prom dates, here’s a list of students that might be available,” said Principal Barrett Cahill.

Cahill said the e-mail listed 22 girls, made suggestive comments, and detailed their dating experience.

The principal said he’s confident school officials will find out who sent out the e-mail.

“So this stands out as something that’s pretty unusual for us, and also, we’re going to react strongly to it to make certain that they understand that this is not OK,” said Cahill.

Cahill said he’s not certain if Ipswich police will take action.
