The Superintendent of Wallingford Schools has sent a letter to parents of students following what he calls a second disturbing message being posted on social media in one day.
According to Superintendent Salvatore Menzo a posting to Snapchat Friday night follows a posting earlier in the day also on Snapchat.
According to police an arrest has been made related to inappropriate comments in the first incident. The Superintendent says the second incident has also been reported to police however police tell News 8 Saturday morning that they are not aware of the second incident.
Here is the Superintendent’s letter:
Unfortunately, another disturbing message was posted this evening on Snapchat. Administration immediately reported it to the police, and they are investigating.
As is the case with the other student from earlier today, any student who is involved in this matter will not be allowed on school property, and administration will work with the Board of Education to ensure policy is followed and the matter is addressed in a serious and swift manner.
I ask that all parents please discuss with their children the seriousness of making any threats or posting any disturbing pictures on the internet. All students and staff are entitled to a safe learning environment. Therefore, administration and the Wallingford Police Department will not tolerate such behavior.
As more information that can be shared becomes available, I will inform families. We appreciate your support in this matter.
