Note: This incident was reported to police weeks after it occurred. In our opinion
the board and principal seriously erred in waiting so long to report the
incident to authorities.

Concerned citizens asked the Ukiah School Board Wednesday about a hazing incident on Halloween involving teenagers who are students at the school.
Superintendent Dan Korber said that his staff had carried out an investigation and that he believes the school is a safe place for all students. Details of the incident are protected by student confidentiality, he said.
Later in the meeting, the board went into closed session to discuss the incident, after which the board directed Korber to contact the Umatilla County Sheriff’s Office to provide information and make staff and students available for interviews as necessary.
