Two students from a Wyoming high school were disciplined after showing up for classes in white robes intended to represent KKK apparel, officials said.
The unidentified duo went Wednesday to Riverton High School wearing the garb — one with a hood pulled up as they arrived on campus, CNN reported.
“It seems to be a very poor decision,” said Terry Snyder, who is superintendent of Fremont County School District No. 25.
The superintendent said the students “did not have an understanding of the impact that would create.”
Both students were punished, though the nature of the disciplinary action wasn’t clear, the outlet reported.
“It is important we teach that respect and understanding and we have additional work to do obviously and we will do that work,” Snyder told CNN.
School officials said they were aware photos of the students in their robes were making rounds on social media.
“We do not condone or support the student’s actions,” the school wrote on Facebook. “We have taken disciplinary measures and have handled it. One student’s decision does not represent our school or district. We are an inclusive school that is proud of our diverse population and celebrate that fact regularly.”
