GROSSE POINTE FARMS, Mich. (AP) - A suburban Detroit high school is defending the suspension of students who were photographed with a racial slur on their bodies.

The photo was taken away from the grounds of Grosse Pointe South High School. But principal Moussa Hamka says the conduct code allows officials to monitor student behavior that has an impact on the school’s “learning environment.”

In a photo repeatedly shared on social media, two girls and a boy lifted their shirts to reveal a racial slur. A fourth student had a message on her leg in support of marijuana.

Their suspension will last five days. Superintendent Gary Niehaus says the students met with the principal and apologized.
