Las Vegas Area High School Punishes Teens for Antisemitic Snapchat Video

Doral Academy of Nevada has said it will punish the Red Rock High School students who were recorded making anti-Semitic gestures and images in class recently.

The group StopAntisemitism.org shared a video of students forming a swastika out of pencils and performing a Nazi salute, apparently first posted to Snapchat.

In a letter to families sent out Thursday, Principal Danielle McDowell said Doral Academy learned about the video that morning.

She said the school condemns all forms of hate, racism, antisemitism and discrimination.

“Swift disciplinary action has been taken in accordance with Doral policies and in collaboration with the parents of the students involved,” McDowell said.

Doral is committed to addressing bias-related incidents and would work on creating more educational opportunities, she wrote.

Staff are also working with student clubs, including the Jewish Student Union.

“We encourage our parents to have conversations at home as well about the impact of harmful and offensive behavior and what is appropriate to share with others,” said McDowell.
