Investigation underway after video surfaces of 2 Lawrence High students having sex in hallway

LAWRENCE, MASS. (WHDH) - School officials and police in Lawrence are investigating after a video circulated that appeared to show two high school students having sex in a hallway during an after-school, extra-curricular event.

A spokesperson for the district says they became aware of the video on Tuesday after it had been posted on social media.

In a statement, the district said, “We work every day within our school community to reinforce the importance of safe, appropriate personal conduct and responsible social media behavior. Similarly, we hope all social media users will show good judgment in posting or sharing explicit material, particularly any content potentially involving minors.”

Parents received a call from the superintendent’s office, notifying them of the district’s investigation.

The district says the sexual activity appears to have happened earlier this fall during an after-school, extra-curricular event.

Even after school hours, some parents and former students are still left wondering how no adult noticed the sex happening just outside a classroom.

“When I was in school, they would patrol the hallway,” said a former student. “Like I would stay, because I would do theater as well, and I would stay until like 7 or later and there were teachers at that time as well. So I don’t know how that happened.”
