Sixteen South Fort Myers High School students have been disciplined after they were found to be involved in sexual activity in a restroom at the school last week.
Lee schools’ spokeswoman Amity Chandler said the punishment ranged on several levels.
The discipline came on the heels of the discovery that multiple male students engaged in sexual activity with a female student in a restroom.
Chandler said the punishments had been handed out and there were no more disciplinary actions pending.
She added that at the time the incident occurred, after regular school hours, there had been adults present in the hallway where the bathroom was located.
“They did not go into the bathroom,” she said. Additionally, reports that a school sports coach had entered the restroom and broken up the activity are not true, she said.
“That did not happen,” Chandler
