On Friday morning Superintendent Randy Wood released the following statement:
"We are in the process of investigating the inappropriate use of social media by some of our students. Remarks that were made will not be tolerated, and those involved will be disciplined. These remarks do not reflect in any way the beliefs of Sallisaw Public Schools or our student body. This is an opportunity for us to educate our students and community that words matter. We will seek racial and cultural sensitivity training for our students and staff in order to promote positive relationships among all our students, staff and community."
