PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

The principal and athletic director at Boulder Creek High School have been suspended for 10 days without pay in the wake of a controversial Trump video that they claimed was a parody.

In it, Boulder Creek principal Lauren Sheahan portrays Kellyanne Conway, President Trump's campaign manager, and another staff member, Jay Kopas, acts as Donald Trump, saying things like, "keep those moron parents and weak and loser students out."

Another line, "have you seen his hands," to which Sheahan, acting as Conway, chimes in, "let me clarify what was just tweeted by Mr. Trump."

The skit, which was originally performed live for school staff on January 19, was recorded, and that video was sent in an email to all employees.

The pair covered a lot in their nearly-seven minute performance including building a wall, a dig at the school board, calling out staff members by name and more.

The Deer Valley Unified School District on Wednesday hand-delivered letters to Sheahan and Kopas notifying them there were in violation of several of the district’s guidelines and policies.

Sheahan apologized in a letter sent Jan. 22, saying she was “deeply sorry to anyone who was offended.”
