School officials are condemning the behavior and taking steps to reach out after a hateful personal hotspot name containing the image of a swastika was found to be available near the high school campus.
The school district reaffirmed its no-tolerance policy to racism and promised to open a conversation with students to promote understanding in the wake of the troubling incident, Superintendent Jonathan Raymond wrote in a letter to families dated Nov. 22.
The hateful hotspot name that included a depiction of a swastika showed up on devices as an available WiFi hotspot near the New Rochelle High School campus. School officials were alerted to the hateful images by a student, Raymond said. School officials said they alerted the New Rochelle Police Department, as well as members of New Rochelle's Jewish community right away.
