Dr. Henry A. Wise Jr. High School employee. sent sexually explicit photos to students

A Maryland high school apologized Friday after an employee accidentally sent sexually explicit photos to the entire student body, school officials said.

Director Taryn Washington at Dr. Henry A. Wise Jr. High School in Prince George’s County sent a letter to the students’ families Friday informing them of the incident, saying the employee “accidentally” sent an email to all students containing the photos.

Washington said school administrators immediately tried to retract the email, but the photos were seen by many people and shared with others.

“I ask that all students, as responsible online citizens, not share the photos via email, social media or other means,” Washington said.

In the letter, Washington said that “appropriate action has been taken regarding the employee,” but further details about disciplinary action, if any, were not released. Fox News Digital reached out to Washington for more information about those steps and to see if the person remains employed at the school.
