Superintendent's statement on Facebook post

From Superintendent Mike Folks:

A very serious and alarming racist Facebook post happened overnight by an individual who listed Hutchinson Public Schools as her employer. The posts were about the national turmoil involving the killing of George Floyd. First and foremost, the district will respond swiftly and harshly to all comments of this nature.

Hutchinson Police have been contacted about the post.

Our research this morning finds the district does not have and has not had a Marsha Williams on staff who matches her Facebook profile.  A check of all staff using her listed birthdate found none of our employees were born on that date.

Her profile has since been taken down.

Again, USD 308 has policies in place that will be followed and will not tolerate any such activity by an employee.
