PANAMA CITY, Fla. — Administrators at Rutherford High School are investigating after they say a student made a racially insensitive and suicidal social media post.
According to principal Coy Pilson, Late Monday afternoon, administrators at Rutherford High School were made aware of a racially-insensitive post that was circulating on social media.
He says they immediately began to investigate because the post referenced suicidal thoughts and was concerned for the student involved.
Early on in the investigation, another student came forward and took responsibility for the post.
He says Rutherford does not tolerate social media posts that are disruptive to our school or are violations of our student code of conduct.
However, due to student confidentiality requirements, no additional information will be released regarding this situation or consequences assigned.
