The teacher has not been identified, but has been placed on paid administrative leave.

“A staff member, who is also a parent in the community, approached us with some texts and tweets, making allegations about a high school staff member and inappropriate relationships with some students,” Franklin Schools Superintendent Maureen Sabolinski told WBZ-TV.

Police would not comment and the Norfolk District Attorney’s office said there are no charges pending.
