WEST ROXBURY (CBS) – Catholic Memorial School has fired its assistant athletic director for “inappropriate text messaging.”
In a letter to parents this week obtained by WBZ NewsRadio 1030, school president Paul Sheff said James Cerbo was fired after an investigation determined that the text messages were unacceptable and clearly violated the West Roxbury school’s policies on “harassment, electronic communications and boundaries. “
Sheff also noted that the Department of Children and Families has been notified.
No other details were released by the school, which said it “takes very seriously its moral and legal obligation to protect its students.”
“Our office has been notified of the matter and we are investigating,” a spokesperson for the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office told WBZ-TV Friday.
There has been no comment yet from Cerbo.
Catholic Memorial is an all-boys school from grades 7-to-12. Classes are out for the summer.
