CSRA News

NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C. (WJBF) — NewsChannel 6 has received what some say was a racist picture posted to social media by a possible Fox Creek High School student.

“Happy birthday girly!! Now can I say n-” a picture showed.

NewsChannel 6’s Shawn Cabbagestalk contacted the South Carolina Public Charter School. With multiple pictures attached to an email, he asked school leaders if they were aware of the incident, if they could confirm the young lady is a student at Fox Creek, and if they had a statement about the overall situation.

The Fox Creek High School administrative team was notified Saturday afternoon that a student may have made a post on Snapchat with content that was clearly inappropriate. The post does not in any way reflect the values of Fox Creek High School or the school’s commitment to diversity and the inclusion of all students. The administration at Fox Creek will continue to investigate the incident and act accordingly. Fox Creek High School is committed to providing an environment free of biases of any nature in order to promote the education of all students.
