DUXBURY (CBS) –The superintendent of Duxbury Schools says school officials have made a disturbing discovery – eighth graders “sexting.”
Superintendent Ben Tantillo tells WBZ NewsRadio 1030, late last week they learned some middle school girls – mostly eighth graders – were sending suggestive, inappropriate pictures to boys.
The boys allegedly spread some of the photos around, Tantillo said.
According to a statement posted on Duxbury Middle School’s website, sexting is defined as “the act of sending sexually explicit messages and/or photographs, primarily between mobile phones, and or other electronic devices.”
‘We have to determine , which we are determining, if something that happens outside of school is a distraction inside of school,” Tantillo said.
Those involved could face anything from detention to suspension, he said.
The school contacted police and are also conducting their own investigation.
