Catholic Memorial official fired for inappropriate texts, school says

The Department of Children and Families was notified of the investigation, Griffin said.

The school sent letters this week to students’ families regarding the dismissal.

Officials did not say whether the recipient of the messages was a student at the school, which is an all-boys academy teaching grades 7 through 12.

“The text messages were unacceptable, and clearly violate the school’s policies pertaining to harassment, electronic communications and boundaries,” Griffin said. “Student safety, virtual and otherwise, is our top priority.”
