IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM SUPERINTENDENT BRIAN C. MONAHAN


We have received a number of phone calls today regarding an incident that took place on social media, in which a high school student made racially-charged comments about a fellow classmate.


Please know that we have been aware of this matter since it occurred. The incident was immediately reported to law enforcement agencies at the time. The ensuing external and internal investigations, and collaboration between the district and law enforcement, resulted in disciplinary action for the offending student. The district legally cannot discuss any resulting student disciplinary actions, including this one, for any reason.


The district has no tolerance for hateful language or any type of conduct that endangers the physical or emotional sense of safety and security of our students and staff. Those who choose to test these boundaries will endure the consequences outlined by the district’s code of conduct, and/or those under the law.  


We encourage parents and guardians to have conversations with their children and reinforce these messages at home.
