BELLINGHAM, Wash. – The Superintendent of Bellingham Schools will not say what disciplinary actions will be taken about the profanity used at an awards ceremony at Bellingham High School.

BHA made national news after some members of the drama club swore and told sexually-explicit jokes at the school Sunday night at a drama awards ceremony.

Superintendent Greg Baker in a press release says the school district does not publicly shame students or staff members by discussing details of disciplinary actions.

He says the students involved have expressed great regret and sincere apologies, and the adviser issued a public apology on Monday.

Baker says he’s telling all students and club advisers that he expects the same respectful behavior after school hours as they do during the school day.
