A teacher could potentially be fired after it was discovered he let his students play the video game “Halo” in homeroom last school year.

Heath Elementary School social studies teacher Larry Chen received a “notice of intent to terminate” from Brookline Public Schools Superintendent Andrew Bot. Chen will not be in class Thursday, the first day of classes, according to NBC10 Boston.

According to the television station, a hearing was held Wednesday to determine if Chen could resume teaching at the school, but no decision was made.

In a statement provided to NBC10 Boston, the school district said, “The ‘Halo’ video games were not in any way part of or connected to the sixth-grade curriculum and the Public Schools of Brookline does not endorse or condone this activity for students in school.”
