Officials with Hillsboro Independent School District said a student will face disciplinary action after joking about shooting up the high school.

The student made the joke Wednesday, but the district was not made aware of the comments until midday Thursday.

In a letter released to parents, Hillsboro ISD superintendent Vicki Adams said the students were never in danger, and school administrators addressed the situation immediately.

Originally, there was a report that a student planned to bring a gun to the high school on Friday. 

The student's family is cooperating with school officials and the Hillsboro Police Department

On Friday morning, the district said the situation had been addressed but police will still be on campus for the day.
