Idaho Elementary Teachers Who Dressed Up As Mexicans And The Border Wall Suspended

Over a dozen Idaho elementary school teachers and staff members were suspended Saturday after the group dressed up as Mexicans and President Donald Trump’s Mexico-U.S. border wall for Halloween.

Middleton School District superintendent Dr. Josh Middleton announced during a Saturday morning school board meeting that 14 employees of the school district’s Heights Elementary school were put on paid administrative leave following the controversial costumes. After Middleton’s announcement, a statement from the school district’s board of trustees was read aloud, the Idaho Statesman reports.

The photos of staffers were posted to the Middleton School District’s Facebook page the day after Halloween and quickly went viral after people from the district and other social media users expressed outrage over the racist costumes. In the photos, half the group is dressed as the border wall, which reads “Make America Great Again,” while the other half are holding maracas while dressed in ponchos and sombreros.

According to a note signed by Middleton, the elementary school will receive heightened security, offer a crisis team to support the “social-emotional well-being, for students, staff and parents,” and there will be cultural sensitivity training for all staff members that will continue annually.
