Wallingford-Swarthmore holds meeting on racially-motivated incidents. Tamala Edwards reports during Action News Mornings on January 3, 2019.

The Wallingford-Swarthmore school community continues to deal with the fallout of two racially motivated incidents last month.

On Wednesday night, district officials provided parents and students with an update on the situation, but no resolution was given.

Several female students at Strath Haven High School are suspected of penning a threatening, hate-filled letter.

At least one of those girls is also accused of wearing KKK attire in a social media post.
