Tempe Union High School District’s response

Jan 23, 2016 — TUHSD shares your outrage and disappointment over the actions of a few students. It is unacceptable for any racial slur to be used regardless of intent. That behavior is unacceptable and will not be tolerated at Desert Vista or in our district. Reports of a 5-day suspension are inaccurate. The disciplinary process is still ongoing and we can assure you the appropriate disciplinary action will be taken.
