The image posted to Snapchat quickly made the rounds on the chatter pages in Brownsburg before being shared more widely.

In the image, the students were seen with the racial slur written in chalk on the pavement in front of them.

We are aware of this situation involving BHS students. This type of behavior is disappointing, insensitive, offensive, not acceptable, and not representative of our community or our students. We have identified these individuals and are moving forward with swift and appropriate discipline.
