"Apparently, there was an incident, or series of incidents, in which a number of students were involved in 'kick a Jew day,' in the Vestal school," said Michael Wright, chairman of community relations for the Jewish Federation of Broome County.
Some students are facing disciplinary action, one parent said.
The parent, Gordon Gardner, said he got a telephone call this week from Mike Rotondi, assistant principal at Vestal High, who told him 37 students, including his 14-year-old son, could face suspensions because of the event.
"Kick a Ginger Day" has now apparently morphed into 'kick a Jew day," officials said. In November 2009, "kick a Jew day" at Naples Middle School in Florida made national news.
