PLAISTOW- An app from Apple called After School has been pulled from the App Store after a group of students in Vermont demanded its removal.
Some New Hampshire students have followed suit.
"Apps fad their way out, and there are real problems with the school because people use them to the way they should not be using them," Timberlane High School senior Tommy Johnston said.
Timberlane was one of several New Hampshire High Schools that had student who used the app. After School allowed students to post messages on anonymous message boards.
"It creates a whole other level of volume of work for our school administration and staff to deal with," Superintendent Dr. Earl Metzler said. "Sometimes you're working with these unknowns, and I think fear of the unknown and psychological warfare is really probably the most damaging."
"You know kids aren't going to be using our computers to be accessing things like that but it's hard to totally stop things like that from impacting the building because they have their own devices," Timberlane Principal Donald Woodworth said.
Since the app has been deleted, users can no longer log-on.
