Two Frenchtown High School students have been suspended over apparently racially motivated Facebook posts.

From the Missoula County Sheriff’s Office’s Facebook page:

“Yesterday, it was reported to the Missoula County Sheriff’s Office that a student at Frenchtown High School had recently posted inappropriate, violent and racist content via her social media. Following our offices discovery of the posts, we initiated an investigation. We are working collaboratively with the Missoula County Attorneys Office to determine what, if any, charges would follow in this investigation. This is still an ongoing case.

The MCSO school resource officer is working closely with the Frenchtown School administration to maintain the safety of the students and faculty. These postings are troublesome and we are taking this matter very seriously as we do all matters of public safety."
