Late this afternoon school officials issued the following statement:

“Milton Hershey School is taking this matter very seriously and cooperating with police in every way possible as they investigate. A staff member was questioned and his employment was terminated as a result. He has been told that he may not return to campus. We regret any impact this individual’s personal actions have had on any of our students, and have begun our own full investigation of the matter.”
The name of the fired worker was not disclosed. School officials say they are devastated by the violation of trust placed upon workers who care for the students.  They also said that staff are available for any student who may need counsel.  Milton Hershey School is a cost-free, private, co-ed home & school for children from low-income families.
Derry Township Police are investigating the incident.
