A student in Tarpoly Creek, Australia, completes school work from home on April 5, near the onset of the new coronavirus pandemic. This week, Maryland school district officials responded to reports that one student displayed a hateful image on Zoom, the teleconferencing application many schools are using to hold classes remotely.

The Damascus High School student who posted the avatar, described as “a cartoon image of a Nazi” by administration officials, was not identified by name. However, Kevin Yates, Damascus High School’s principal, reportedly confirmed the student will face consequences for violating the district’s code of conduct in a letter issued to families and obtained by WUSA9, a CBS-affiliated news station based in Washington, D.C.

“I am writing to share information about an incident that occurred during your child’s third-period art class today and how it is being addressed. A student posted a cartoon image of a Nazi as a Zoom avatar,” Yates wrote in the Wednesday letter sent to parents whose students are also enrolled in the class, according to WUSA9. The letter reportedly said school officials ensured the photo was removed from the student’s Zoom account “immediately” after the incident was brought to their attention, in addition to contacting both the student and his family.
