JOHNSTOWN, Colo. — School officials in Colorado are investigating allegations that a high school Spanish teacher allowed students to hit a piñata with a picture of President Trump on it during a Cinco de Mayo celebration.
KCNC-TV reported Sunday that Johnstown Milliken School District Superintendent Martin Foster said the incident allegedly occurred on the grounds of Roosevelt High School in the northern Colorado town of Johnstown.
The station said the teacher, whose name was not released, is on paid leave.
Lesley Hollywood, the parent of a Roosevelt student, said she was offended when saw a video of the piñata on the social media app Snapchat.
Hollywood says she didn’t vote for Trump, but the piñata was disrespectful.
