““It is a student discipline issue, so no comment as far as what has been done with the students,” Bevins said. “We have taken action already.” 

The Principal of CCHS, Bill Messerole also released a statement ensuring the public that the teens actions do not reflect the schools views.

“The picture does not represent CCHS, our school system or our community.”

“We are proud of how our students and staff conducted themselves today after the picture became public. It is of the utmost importance that our students feel safe and welcomed in our district,” he wrote.

The racist image comes just days after students at a central Indiana high school were banned from wearing the Confederate flag after it caused altercations in the school’s hallways.

Disturbing racial behavior from the past.
