About 70 students at Cypress Ranch High School near Houston reportedly gave Nazi salutes and chanted “Heil Hitler” and “Heil Trump” during a senior class photo this week.
The incident prompted school officials to send a letter home to parents, according to KPRC-TV, acknowledging that “several students made the poor choice of displaying inappropriate gestures” during the photo.
KPRC received an email from a student who witnessed the alleged salutes.
The student, who wished to remain anonymous, told the TV station that the class photo was taken Tuesday. After a serious picture was taken, the class posed for a funny one.

A photo obtained by KPRC shows several students with their arms extended and hands pointed upward during the shot.
“It was pretty terrifying,” the student witness told the TV station.
