On Thursday Sallisaw school officials were notified of racial statements made on social media by a small group of students. The issue was brought to their attention after a fellow student posted screenshots of a Snapchat conversation between the students. The Facebook post has gone viral and has caused many to be outraged over the words involved in the post.
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."
