(TRIBUNE-REVIEW) Quotations attributed in the Quaker Valley High School yearbook to a terrorist and two of history's most notorious mass murderers — Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin and Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi — have district leaders apologizing and offering refunds to families.
In an email Wednesday to parents, Quaker Valley School District leaders apologized for “offensive” quotes published in the graduating class section of the yearbook, which was distributed to students Monday.
“This is a regrettable mistake, as the school district would never knowingly condone this messaging in a school-sponsored publication,” the statement — signed by Superintendent Heidi Ondek, high school Principal Deborah Riccobelli and yearbook sponsor and English teacher Tamra Rosa — said. “We are well aware of the emotions this has conjured in many of our students and their families, and for that we are sorry.”
