DeKalb County School District is investigating a school nurse after allegations surfaced she’d made racially insensitive comments on social media.

In response to a posting counting down the days til President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration, Tish Domins posted “Go back to Mexico,” amid comments from other posters about undocumented residents.

Domins works at Cary Reynolds Elementary School.

Several teachers, who asked not to be named for fear of retaliation, forwarded the Facebook posts to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Cary Reynolds is part of the Cross Keys cluster of schools, a highly diverse cluster including refugees and students of undocumented residents.

The district said in a statement that the allegations will be investigated.

"We take seriously any allegations of staff misconduct and, as we have done in the past, we will investigate and respond appropriately after the facts are known. The health and safety of our students and staff are our top priorities.”

Two Cross Keys High School teachers resigned after Donald Trump's election after being accused of threatening students of color. One of them later told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution by email that many of the allegations were not true.
