Two Fairfield Ludlowe High School students have been disciplined after a video featuring racial slurs directed toward a rival school went viral through social media.
The 10-second video, which originated on Snapchat, shows a Ludlowe student doing a mock cheer in which the slur is used for rival Fairfield Warde High School.
Interim Superintendent Stephen Tracy first saw the video Wednesday night. He says it was shot during a soccer game Tuesday at Warde.
Warde students say they heard there was a letter from the Ludlowe headmaster discussing the video and apologizing to all students.
Tracy says two students have been disciplined, but he is not allowed to reveal the exact nature of the punishment for privacy reasons.
