The Webster Central School District is taking disciplinary action after a Snapchat video has gone viral of students in a limo heading to the junior prom. The video showed the students in a limo singing along to a "song that included racially offensive language." The district met with concerned students and students who produced the video on Tuesday. We have seen the video, but have chosen not to post it because the students are minors.
The district sent the following statement to WHEC:
Webster CSD was recently made aware of a video that was made on Saturday, June 1, during a limo ride as Webster Schroeder High School students were attending the junior prom. The video showed students singing along to a song that included racially offensive language.
Webster CSD takes these matters very seriously and the building administration has been in contact with the students in the video. Parents were also contacted so that they, too, could discuss the hurtful and offensive language that was heard in the video.
Today, very productive restorative sessions took place involving Webster Schroeder's administrators, students who expressed their dismay and concern with this particular video, and students who produced the video. Webster CSD cannot legally share any student disciplinary action as that would be a violation of both student and family privacy.
