The students have yet to be identified, but the school district is threatening legal action pending an investigation.

NBC 15 News, the local television affiliate, reported on Monday they called Baraboo School District for a response and to confirm that young men in the photo are infact students at Baraboo High School, but the school only responded saying it was preparing a press release on the incident. 

“We even got the black kid to throw it up #BarabooProud,” the now-deleted account tweeted.

A school district official tweeted Monday morning:

“The photo of students posted to #barabooproud is not reflective of the educational values and beliefs of the school district of Baraboo. We are investigating and will pursue any and all available and appropriate actions, including legal, to address.”
