A Jupiter High School student is facing charges for bringing a BB gun to school. 

Principal Dr. Colleen Iannitti, told parents the student posted a picture of the BB gun on Snapchat. The photo was taken on campus inside a classroom.

Two students alerted administrators after they saw the post, Iannitti said Thursday in a phone call to parents. 

After school police identified the student who posted the photo, they charged the student, who now faces additional disciplinary action under the Student Code of Conduct. 

District officials haven’t identified the student, their age or the charges filed against them. 

Iannitti urged parents to speak to their children about responsible social media use and that the online platforms should be used for good, and not to do harm to others.
