KOIN, Oregon — The Newberg School District said in a statement Monday that Mabel Rush Elementary School employees were on leave after appearing to work at Blackface.

According to KOIN6 news partner Newberg Graphic, staff have said they are protesting the vaccination obligations of teachers in the guise of Rosa Parks.

The school district is already in the midst of two ongoing situations regarding race.

Last week, the Newberg High School board confirmed that one of its students faced potential punishment for joining a racist Snapchat group that joked about slavery.

The punishment given to the student will not be published unless the board is notified of the appeal.

The school district is still deciding how to implement the Black Lives Matter ban and the pride symbol that voted to enact earlier this year.

KOIN 6 will update this story as more details become available.
