Janesville School District officials are investigating an alarming post on the Internet.

Director of Administration and Human Services Steve Sperry says several middle school athletes are accused in what appears to be a hoax. Sperry says information about a bus crash and death were posted on Facebook. The misinformation prompted school officials to notify parents of the story's inaccuracy through an instant phone messaging alert system.

The students involved are facing disciplinary action, and Sperry says he hopes the situation can become a learning experience for everyone.
