But the comic was actually part of a 3-year-old investigation of racist graffiti that was discovered on campus. Principal Connie Cirimeli immediately followed up with a letter of her own to parents, explaining that the secretary had, for unexplained reasons, added the digital image to the newsletter without proofreading it. She then sent it out, without having anyone else in the school office look at it -- which is also against school policy.
Cirimeli assured parents that "appropriate personnel action" would be taken, although she didn't elaborate any further to the press.
