Racist Comments Deleted


LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Dear Big Walnut Families:

I often say that the safety of our students is our number one priority. Part of maintaining a positive school culture means making sure that all students feel safe and secure.

Sadly, during the Martin Luther King break, there were racist comments posted on social media by a Big Walnut student. Thanks to the quick and sensitive actions by many adults, we quickly deleted the remarks from the district-owned social media pages over which we have control. In addition, the student received severe discipline in accordance with our policy.

Please know that we respect all students and will not tolerate any discriminatory or racist behavior. If you are aware of any incidents, please contact your child’s principal immediately. Thank you for helping us to maintain a safe environment for all students.

Sincerely,

Angie Pollock

Superintendent
