(Norwalk, CT) – Today, June 23, 2023, Mayor Rilling and Norwalk Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Estrella released the following statement regarding a video capturing a group of youth on a Nathan Hale Middle School field making racist remarks circulating on social media. 

"While the City’s Recreation and Parks Department has confirmed that this group of youth was not associated with the City of Norwalk or Norwalk Public Schools, we strongly condemn the racist language they used displayed in a video circulating on social media.
