Spam gets teen in trouble
• A Palisade High School student was suspended Monday for allegedly attempting to send out a districtwide e-mail with inappropriate content.
Principal Matt Diers said the district’s e-mail filters caught the message before it was sent. The student was attempting to send the e-mail while in computer class.
No threats of violence were made, Diers said, but law enforcement was called in to review the e-mail, and the student was suspended for violating district technology-use policy.
According to District 51 technology policy, inappropriate use of technology includes sending or viewing pornographic, racist or hateful or drug or alcohol-related material.
