Parkway West Middle School Principal Linda Lelonek said four or five students will face punishment including parent-teacher conferences and suspensions after they designated "Hit a Jew Day" as part of an unofficial "spirit week" that also included "Hug a Friend Day" and "High Five Day," the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Thursday.
Lelonek said the students mostly were not hitting the 850-student school's Jewish population of about 35 but rather tapping them lightly.
"It was almost like a tag thing," Lelonek said. "But then it changed."
She said three or four students were slapped.
