Several students at St. Marguerite d’Youville Secondary School were told not to come to school Wednesday after police were made aware of the tweets – some of which were sexual in nature.
The school maintains its right to punish students even though the comments were not posted using school computers, according to Bruce Campbell, director of communications for the Dufferin-Peel Catholic School Board.
“Even if you use social media on your own time, you don’t have a right to malign anyone,” said Campbell.
A decision on how to punish the students will be made tomorrow, Campbell said.
