RIDGEWOOD — A week after a nude picture scandal rattled the high school community, district officials are now warning the parents of fourth- and fifth-graders about a “scary, quite graphic” text message being circulated between students.
Lorna Oates-Santos, principal at Somerville Elementary School, sent an email to parents Tuesday warning of the “widespread” sharing of an “inappropriate” text message “that comes from the internet.”
Schools Superintendent Daniel Fishbein said Wednesday the text message was not sexual in nature.
