A school district in Southern California condemned a video of high-schoolers giving Nazi salutes and singing a Nazi song after it became public Monday.
The video , obtained by the Daily Beast — which posted about 8 seconds of it — shows members of the boys’ water polo team at Pacifica High School in Garden Grove in an empty room that administrative officials say was later used for an athletic banquet.
The article goes on to state the following:
The Garden Grove Unified School District said in a statement that the footage was recorded last November but that administrators hadn’t become aware of the video until March. It said the students were unsupervised at the time. The district said Monday that administrators had “addressed the situation with all students and families involved,” but failed to specify what disciplinary actions it took.
The Jewish Telegraph Agency reports:
A spokesperson for the Garden Grove Unified School District which includes Pacifica High School told the Daily Beast that school administrators learned of the incident and video in March, four months after it occurred.
“While the district cannot comment on student discipline, the school did address this situation with all involved students and families,” the spokesperson said. “The district adheres to strong policies about harassment and cultural sensitivity, and we condemn all acts of anti-Semitism and hate in all forms. We remain focused on educating students about cultural sensitivity and are committed to holding students accountable, educating them on the consequences of their choices, and the impact these actions have on our schools and community at large.”
A current Pacifica student told the Daily Beast that the incident was never spoken about by the administration and said it is not clear how the students involved were punished.
