Due to ongoing concerns regarding safety and security of our students and staff, Prosser Heights Library Assistant, Peggy Brown, has been placed on Paid Administrative Leave pending further review.
Earlier today, the District learned that a teacher at Keene-Riverview Elementary School had posted on her personal Facebook page a message that appears related to undocumented immigrants. The post may be considered hostile and/or offensive on the basis of national origin. The District has received a number of angry and concerning emails, phone calls, and visits to the District office by concerned citizens and parents. Due to possible safety and security concerns, as well as concern for disruption of the school environment, this teacher has been placed on administrative leave pending investigation of this incident by the District.
Please be assured that the views expressed by this teacher on her personal Facebook page do not in any way reflect the views, beliefs or values of the Prosser School District or its administration or Board of Directors.
