Administrators Address Anti-Semitic Incident At Connecticut High School

WEST HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Officials at a Connecticut high school say they have “handled” an anti-Semitic incident at the school.

Hall High School Principal Dan Zittoun tells the Hartford Courant administrators investigated and took action after two students reported the act Tuesday. Zittoun says he couldn’t disclose information about the incident at the West Hartford school because it involves disciplinary matters for a student. He says acts against marginalized groups “will never be tolerated.”

Zittoun told parents in a letter that West Hartford Public School administrators have reached out to groups to talk about “current educational programming and explore new ones.”

West Hartford Assistant Police Chief Robert McCue says there wasn’t a threat or property damage. McCue says the department isn’t investigating the incident.
