The Martin County School District has completed its investigation into a racist photo taken by students on school grounds this week.

Although the process is over, it appears the public won't be learning exactly how, or if, those students from Hidden Oaks Middle School in Palm City will be punished.

In a statement released on Thursday night, the school district’s Superintendent John Millay said he couldn’t specify the disciplinary actions because federal and state law prohibits that.

According to the school's Code of Student Conduct, the incident could fall under the Profane, Obscene, Abusive Language or Materials under Level 2 infractions. That means the students involved could face things like alternative placement, community service, diversity assignment or out-of-school suspension for five days or less.
