She told Bryant High School administrators and found they were working on shutting down the pages with a school resource officer. But, in some ways, it seemed the damage was done. "Kids started to fight," says Kassidy. "It's like out of a movie you walk down the hall, everybody has seen these pages and they know what was said even if it's not true rumors spread fast," she says.
Kassidy, a senior with a 3.8 GPA, heading to play college softball, hopes people get to know the real her, and avoid allowing fake pages to ruin a student's image or dampen their spirits. "I think my friends are strong and know the truth and I hope everyone else does," she says.
The district respectfully declined our interview request but sent along a statement saying:"These social media sites hurt kids. We don't take bullying lightly. We will use every means necessary to get to the bottom of this and prevent it from happening again. Those responsible will be disciplined according to district handbook policy."-- Jay Pickering, Bryant High School Principal.
