In response to the video reposted to YouTube last night that included two girls spewing their long, racist diatribe about immigration and SB1070, Dr. Anne-Marie Woolsey, principal of Scottsdale Unified School District's Arcadia High School released the following statement to students and parents this morning:
Hello Titan Community:
As you probably know, Arcadia High School has been rumored to be linked to a hateful video that was posted on Facebook as well as You Tube. The two students who were featured on the video are NOT students at Arcadia High School.
Along with our District Office staff and Phoenix Police, we have been investigating the source of these rumors and will continue to do so. In the meantime be assured that:We have taken great precaution in assuring the safety of each and every one of our students on the Arcadia Campus.
Because we feel that it is best to follow our regular schedule today, the Winter Assembly has been postponed. Additionally, we have postponed the Winter Dance scheduled for this Saturday, January 7th.
