Iron County School District administrators are aware of the video that is circulating on social media.
The joint investigation with the Cedar City Police department into the viral video is ongoing. Based on the current findings, officials can definitively say the three individuals in black face are not students in Iron County Schools. The individuals depicted in the video have all been identified and the investigation into their involvement is continuing.
We want our parents and community to know that we have supports and resources available for students who are struggling as a result of the incident and encourage students to speak with school administration or their counselor to access these supports.
Our district and schools continue to promote inclusiveness and acceptance. We denounce all forms of discrimination and racism whether those actions are on campus or off campus, in person or online.
