KATY, Texas (KPRC) – The principal at Seven Lakes High School is trying to get students to stop using the app Gaggle. He has blocked the app from the buildings’ Wi-Fi and is putting a call out to parents to have the app deleted from their children’s phones.

In an email sent home to parents, Principal Ted Vierling wrote, “Unfortunately, the students are using the app to post EXTREMELY hateful speech, photos and drawings of students and staff members. The items I have seen have sickened and saddened me, and we need your help.”

One post in particular talks about a teacher’s disgusting body and horrible personality. Others mention nude photos and sex acts being performed for money.
