East Coweta High School in Sharpsburg, Ga., is currently investigating a photo that surfaced on social media this week, showing a student wearing a Ku Klux Klan hood and carrying a Confederate battle flag, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

The school sent out a letter to parents Wednesday detailing the incident and ensuring them that the matter was being investigated. The students involved have reportedly been identified, though not named.

"From the school’s investigation, it was determined that no specific threat was made in the incident. The school system is continuing to investigate the matter, and is implementing disciplinary consequences," school Principal Steve Allen wrote in the letter. "The Coweta County School System does not allow behavior that infringes on the safety of its students, staff or volunteers, and does not tolerate behavior intended to bully, harass or intimidate others on our campuses. If you have any questions regarding this incident, please do not hesitate to call me."

According to AJC, Lorenzo Lewis, who graduated from the school last spring, was the one who originally tweeted the photo, expressing his disgust. "It left me speechless that a person could be so ignorant as to not only dress like that at school but pose for a picture as well," Lewis told AJC. "Someone sent me the picture and I decided to post it."
