    Important message about the Rio Americano Website:


    Subject: Update on this morning’s message

    Good afternoon,

    I wanted to provide you with an update on the post with hate-filled messages brought to our attention this morning.

    After our initial review, we have found no evidence that a webpage with this message ever existed on the Rio Americano High School website and all indications show that the image is a fake.

    This post is incredibly hurtful to our school community and our staff has been working diligently since discovering it to investigate. I can confirm the message has been reported to and is being looked at by both the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department and the FBI. We are committed to doing everything possible to determine the responsible party. 

    The message does not represent Rio Americano, its staff, students or community. Already, the student body is coming together to add messages of inclusion and acceptance during our back-to-school rally tomorrow at lunch. And, we are also working with a number of community partners to join us on campus Monday morning to welcome students to campus and demonstrate that Rio Americano will not tolerate this type of hate. 

    Thank you again for your support and being a part of our community. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at (916) 971-7494.
