Photo of Student in Blackface Delays Yearbook Distribution


Chaska High School did not deliver its yearbook to senior students Wednesday after a photo of a student wearing blackface was discovered in the yearbook after printing.

The high school received an announcement from school officials Wednesday.

The school is taking immediate steps to remove the page at issue.

Officials say the yearbook team noticed the small photo during a final review.

The photo is of the student cheer section at a football game and includes one student in blackface.

The page with the photograph is being removed from the yearbook, with the goal of delivering the book to seniors today (May 23) and to other students by Tuesday, June 4.
