LADUE, Mo. (KMOV) – Police are investigating after a Ladue Middle School student was allegedly involved in a sex chat with an adult during school hours on Thursday.

The employee went over to the computer in question and saw video from a chat room of a middle-aged man exposing himself to the student and masturbating.

School officials said they notified police. The student’s parents were also contacted and the student was disciplined, according to officials.
“The school district will cooperate fully with this investigation and will protect the student’s privacy as dictated by federal law and district policy,” said Ladue School District Spokesperson Susan Dielmann.
