MINEOLA, N.Y. (AP) - Officials say four Long Island high school students have been expelled in the wake of two racially charged incidents.

The principal of St. Anthony’s High School in South Huntington, Brother Gary Cregan, said Wednesday he expelled two senior boys after they walked into an event on April 9 displaying a Confederate flag.

Newsday ( ) reports two sophomore girls also were expelled. They’re accused of posting a photograph of themselves on social media wearing blackface last Friday night.

It was not clear if the two incidents were related.

The school was closed Wednesday in observance of Holy Week.
