CHAMBERSBURG, PA. -- The Chambersburg Area School District opened a series of sexting seminars Friday afternoon with a live broadcast to its senior high school students. Sexting, the act of sending or receiving nude or semi-nude photos on electronic devices, became a problem for the school district in September when a sexting ring was uncovered when it nearly caused a fight between high school students. The district has taken a proactive approach to dealing with sexting that is centered on education, said Brett Hill, director of district security.

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Chambersburg parents will soon be offered fruit and vegetable trays as an alternative to sending in cupcakes, candies and other sweets for classroom celebrations. Elementary schools in the Chambersburg Area School District are participating in the state's new School Nutrition Incentive Program. The initiative aims to cut down on foods that "compete" with healthy school lunches designed to promote long-term nutritional health. Guidelines for the voluntary program take sodas out of vending machines, ban fundraiser candy sales during the school day and prohibit teachers from using food and candy as a reward.
