The letter does not mention any incident or reason for Matthews' retirement, only highlighting his "long and distinguished career as a professional educator."

Alex Tsakumis, a former student and past president of the school's alumni association, said the incident demanded a full investigation.

"Clearly there's something wrong, and it behooves the board of directors to immediately call everyone, every single one of the school's constituencies together, and see how something like this could have happened in this day and age," he said.

Tsakumis said he understands some of the comments made by the students on the Facebook group were "extremely anti-Semitic."
