Social Media Issue at PHS
This morning, Perrysburg Schools was made aware of a Twitter account that was opened sometime during the last 48 hours and subsequent posts that made very inappropriate and disparaging comments about several of our female students. An investigation immediately began in cooperation with the Perrysburg Police Department and a computer forensics specialist. The posts have been removed and we have communicated this information to our high school families. Our primary goal is to keep our students safe and supported.
The comments were disgusting and reprehensible. The coward or cowards that created and posted these terrible things shall not prevail. Regardless if this was perpetrated by someone in our community or from outside, we will advocate for the most consequential response from the courts upon being caught.
In this moment when Perrysburg High School students were victims of this vile harassment, we had over 100 students, male and female, report this Twitter account to teachers and administrators today, which enabled us to quickly respond. There is absolutely no place for this type of speech in our schools or world.
Because of the ongoing police investigation, the school district cannot comment any further.
