On Wednesday the teacher from Mopan Technical High School in Benque Viejo del Carmen was placed on administrative leave, while investigations continue into the allegations.
Two police officers were present on Wednesday to witness the teacher leaving the compound, after he was served with the letter suspending him from duties.
Pictures of the teacher in the nude began circulating on facebook on Wednesday, allegedly posted by the father of one of the teenage boys who showed his father the pictures.
