A Hispanic student at Coppell High School received a note after Donald Trump’s presidential win last week that said “Make America Great Again!!! Adios!,” according to a Fox 4 News report.

School officials later sent a letter warning students about possible violations of the school’s code of conduct, the TV station reported.

Pictures of the note, which was left on the student’s desk, were shared on Facebook by Coppell resident Ivonne Kinser. The full note said:

“Farewell to you my ole’ friend from tech theatre. Thank you for all and your family did to try and make Coppell a better community . Y’all were such a blessing when it came to building our new arena and turf room. We are very sad our school will not stay very clean anymore but if we need you, we will stay in touch. You will be gratefully missed.”

Another Hispanic student complained to Fox 4 about discriminatory comments made toward him on Election Day.

Minority students in the Plano district reported racially charge remarks after Trump’s win last week, according to the Dallas Morning News.

In Archer City, about two hours northwest of Fort Worth, school officials apologized Monday for comments students made during a volleyball game against Fort Hancock High School, which is near the U.S.-Mexico border.

Students at the game chanted “Build a wall!” while holding Trump signs, according to the Wichita Falls Times Record News.
