Pa. food worker suspended for Facebooking student
TRAFFORD, Pa. - March 7, 2012 (WPVI) -- A cafeteria worker at a Pittsburgh-area middle school has been suspended without pay and is being investigated by police for allegedly flirting with a student on the Facebook social media website.
Tom Butler, the superintendent of the Penn-Trafford School District tells WTAE-TV that the worker made "inappropriate comments where the employee was talking about how she feels about some student." The worker isn't being identified while police continue to investigate the incident at Trafford Middle School.
Butler says the worker was escorted off school property after school officials reviewed the Facebook conversation and interviewed the woman. He says there's no indication the woman touched or abused the student.
Parent Sandi Cochran called the situation "a shame" and says, "Hopefully, parents will keep their awareness of what their kids are doing online."
