Racial bullying investigated by Hiawatha schools
09/12/2019

(KNZA)--Hiawatha USD 415 has launched an investigation into allegations of racial bullying targeting one of its students.

In a letter addressed to patrons of the district, USD 415 Superintendent Lonnie Moser said only that the allegations involved one or more students bullying the victim. The letter did not detail how the alleged harassment happened, but online posts from individuals close to the victim cite social media pictures being used as one method to mock the victim.

Moser said the matter is being taken very seriously and is currently under investigation.

He said the administration learned about it on Wednesday and has taken some first steps in addressing the issue; however he did not explain what those actions were. He added the investigation is still ongoing.

After the investigation concludes, Moser says the school district will act in accordance with its established policies.
