    The principal of Shelton Intermediate School is speaking out after a group from the school was kicked out of a Washington D.C. museum.

    School Principal Dina Marks said the group was at the National Museum of African American History and Culture on Friday when a white student spat over a balcony and it landed on a black visitor.

    In a tweet Saturday, Marks said she believed race was not a factor. Since then, it appears her Twitter page was taken down.

    Superintendent Chris Clouet posted on Facebook calling this a "pattern of behavior that is disrespectful" and asked parents for help by speaking to their own children about how to treat people.

    Officials will discuss disciplinary action, according to Clouet.
