White students from Ardmore High School in Ardmore, Louisiana, came under fire for sharing a picture wearing racist shirts in a Snapchat post on Wednesday. The shirt reportedly read: "demon chasing n-----s."

A teacher from the school, located in Limestone County, reported the incident to the school's administration upon discovery. The controversial clothing was seized from the students immediately.

"The students' actions are a violation of the core values of our school's system and do not represent the student body," Karen Tucker, the Director of Technology and Public Relations with Limestone County Schools, told International Business Times Friday. "We hold our students to the highest standards and we will not tolerate this type of behavior. LCS remains committed to the safety of our students."

Tucker added, "We have rules and regulations on preventing, recognizing and reporting bullying and insensitive behavior as well as curriculum for students at all grade levels. We will continue to take every appropriate measure to ensure that our schools are safe and welcoming places for students to learn."

The students, who are believed to be minors, received an appropriate punishment for their actions, according to Tucker. Details of the punishment, however, were not specified despite IBT's request.

Ardmore High School is home to 950 students grades 6-12. The school's mission and purpose are "to provide appropriate learning opportunities that promote [the] academic, physical, and ethical growth of students enabling them to become productive citizens in an ever-changing society." The students' shirts don't fall in line with the school's ethical growth, which is why the violators have been punished accordingly.

Ardmore High School isn't the first high school to come under fire for racist incidents in recent time.

Two juniors at Volcano Vista High School in Albuquerque, New Mexico, were suspended in August after sharing a modified image of students wearing Ku Klux Klan (KKK) hoods in class. The picture, which was shared to Snapchat, also showed black students wearing the KKK hoods. An investigation was launched immediately after the photo was reported to the school's administrator.

A female student from Robertsdale High School in Robertsdale, Alabama, brought a racist sign to a football pep rally Sept. 15. The sign read: "Put the panic in Hispanic." The viral photo, which emerged from Instagram, also features another female student holding a Donald Trump "Make America Great Again" banner.

Racism is prevalent in schools nationwide, according to a March 2014 report from the U.S. Department of Education. The study, which examined all 97,000 public schools and its 16,500 school districts nationwide, claimed that racial disparities can be seen as early as preschool.

"This critical report shows that racial disparities in school discipline policies are not only well-documented among older students, but actually begin during preschool," said Attorney General Eric Holder said in a press release. "Every data point represents a life impacted and a future potentially diverted or derailed.

Holder added, "This Administration is moving aggressively to disrupt the school-to-prison pipeline in order to ensure that all of our young people have equal educational opportunities."
