DAVIS COUNTY, Utah — A principal and a teacher at a Davis County school are on leave for allowing a boy dressed as Adolf Hitler to march in a Halloween parade.

A photo obtained by KSTU shows the boy participating in a Halloween parade at Creekside Elementary School in Kaysville.

The district is taking the matter very seriously and is investigating every aspect of the situation. The principal and teacher have been placed on paid administrative leave,” a statement from the Davis School District said.

The Davis School District did not identify the principal or teacher involved.
