The harassment has reached a level where it's now gotten the attention of the Collingswood Police Department and the Camden County Prosecutor's Office, according to 6abc.

In a recent letter to students, faculty, parents, and the Collingswood school community, Superintendent Fred McDowell stated, "I am deeply troubled by the allegations. We remain deeply committed to dismantling racism in all its forms and providing equal access to an education that will empower all students."

Keyona Wharton, the mother of a Collingswood High School student, echoed McDowell's concern, telling 6abc, "It's bothersome, especially this day and age to think that it's still going on and the stuff kids have to deal with." She wants the students involved in the alleged hate club to be punished, saying, "I think, because there's no consequences for the students when they do certain things, that it's going to continue on."
