FALL RIVER, Mass. (WLNE) — An Atlantis Charter School employee is accused of inappropriately talking to a high school student.

Robert Beatty, the executive director, said Tuesday they “received sufficient information” to fire an Upper School staff member who was “inappropriately communicating online with someone the staff member believed was a high school student.”

The school said it filed reports with both the Fall River Police Department and the Department of Children and Families.

“Our most important responsibility is the safety and well-being of the students we serve,” said Beatty. “We understand how upsetting these allegations are, and that is why we have taken swift action in response.”

No further information was immediately released.
