The school was told of the alleged nudes after receiving a tip-off from a group of 18-year-old men who were former students.
The group, who are currently studying in Israel, alleged they had received inappropriate photos from Handwerger through the Snapchat app.

School administrators had claimed that Handwerger was possibly involved with a former student around one year ago but both denied the allegations when confronted.

It is our understanding that some graduates and current students may have received copies of the videos and/or photos.
‘We are unaware of how our students received the videos/photos at this time, but have been and continue to conduct a thorough investigation regarding the entirety of this serious matter.’
