Carondelet High School for Girls in Concord, A California High School for Girls is in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons. Their Black History Month lunch menu was recently announced, and some are finding it inappropriate.
School administrators for Carondelet High School for Girls in Concord, California announced Monday it would be serving the meal that week, but reactions from students and parents prompted an assembly and explanatory letter the next day, NBC reports.
“I’d like to apologize for this announcement and any hurt this caused students, parents or community members,” principal Nancy Libby stated. “Please know that at no time at Carondelet do we wish to perpetrate (sic) racial stereotypes,” adding that she met with leaders of the school’s Black Student Union, who requested the watermelon be removed from the menu.
