Assistant principal reassigned after controversial social media post

GERMANTOWN, Tenn. — The Houston High School administrator who created controversy with a Facebook post comparing vaccine cards to the yellow stars worn by Jews during the Holocaust has been reassigned.

ORIGINAL STORY: Houston High assistant principal under investigation following social media post

Ms. Matykiewicz is no longer an administrator at Houston High School, but is still employed by the district, the Germantown Municipal School District said Tuesday.

Portions of the investigation are still ongoing, the district stated.

The Memphis Holler, a popular political watchdog account on Twitter, shared a screenshot of the Facebook post from Janna Matykiewicz last week.

The post says, “What is the difference between vaccine papers and a yellow star? 82 years.”

Nazis forced Jewish people to wear yellow stars to identify themselves during the Holocaust.

Matykiewicz was listed as the assistant principal at Houston High School on the school district’s website.

Reaction to the post included an online petition to have her fired.
