In a letter to parents, Supt. Eric Witherspoon said that some female students had texted “inappropriate photos” to members of the boys varsity baseball team, some of whom had shred those photos amongst themselves. Witherspoon said the school had consulted both the Evanston Police Department and the Department of Children and Family Services, and neither agency planned to take action.
Reacting to the news, some readers praised the school for its actions, while others said the decision might be unfair to players who weren’t involved in sending indecent photos.
