GRAND ISLAND, N.Y. (WIVB)–The Grand Island Central School District is responding to a situation involving a retired teacher.

District officials tell News 4 on Monday morning the former teacher put a disturbing message on a front lawn.

It was captured on video, and the district says it’s being viewed on YouTube, as well as other social media outlets.

According to the Grand Island Central School District, the former employee in the video is no longer associated with the district in any capacity after retiring in January of this year.

“The District, of course, does not endorse or support that message. Instead, the District encourages respectful and constructive dialogue on the issues of the day,” a spokesperson said.
