Middleton teachers who dressed as border wall head back to school following investigation

Posted: Updated:
MIDDLETON, Idaho -

A group of teachers in Middleton, Idaho, who made national headlines for dressing up like pieces of the border wall and Mexican stereotypes for Halloween are headed back to the classroom following an investigation by the school district.

The teachers and aides were placed on leave on November 5. Now the district says its investigation is complete, and cultural sensitivity was expected to begin on Wednesday. 

"It is important to note that after the district's review, it has been validated that there is nothing more than love and commitment in the hearts of these teachers and aides," Superintendent Josh Middleton wrote. Middleton also made note that some of the teachers received threats following news of the costumes. 

"We will welcome our teachers and aides back into their classrooms in the next few days and we embrace this opportunity for continuous improvement and striving toward becoming the district we want to be with the outstanding educators we have," Middleton wrote.

Middleton said in a release Wednesday that the details of the investigation are confidential.
