Cloquet students punished for using N-word

Four students at Cloquet High School are being punished for sending racist messages over social media.

The students were chatting on a private social media thread this summer, in which the N-word was used, according to Superintendent Mike Cary.

Cary says it happened before the school year began. However, a high school staff member heard some of the teens talking about the messages at school, and reported to district administrators.

Superintendent Cary says the school took immediate action, and spoke with the students involved and their parents.

He wouldn’t go into details of their punishment, but had this to say about his administration’s response:

“They immediately investigated the situation and took appropriate action in accordance with District policies and procedures. The administrative team responded quickly to ensure a safe learning environment for all students.”
