Students face discipline for dressing up as KKK members

- Several students at Wiregrass Ranch High School in Wesley Chapel are in trouble after apparently dressing up as KKK members at school.

The students dressed up as part of Spirit Week, school officials said.

The three students, who were not identified by name, posted a photo of themselves dressed up in white sheets on social media with the caption, "BRUHHHHHHHHH."

Pasco County school officials say two of the students are "Hispanic" and one is "Middle Eastern."

Officials first reported one of them was also wearing a Confederate flag, but later said the flag was worn by a fourth student not involved with the three allegedly dressed as KKK members. The school said that student put the flag away after being asked to do so, and was not disciplined.

Officials didn't immediately release what disciplinary actions they will face.
