Elementary school students in a northern suburb were able to access pornography on an electronic tablet provided by the school.

The Huntley-Algonquin District 158 board say they are working to solve the firewall problem that allowed the access.

Around 3,000 students in grade 5 and below have the tablet device called Kunos. It was on this device the students were able to access pornography.

School board members say they first heard about the problem a few weeks ago and are investigating if the student had access at both home and at school.

The administration is working with both Kunos and a third party firewall vendor to fix the problem and prevent it from continuing.
