A public school in the Pacific Northwest has apologized for an incident that involved the posting of an inappropriate tweet about Halloween costumes on its Twitter account.
The school, which has a student body of about 4,000, issued an apology Monday night after it received a tweet from a user who had a private account, including a password.
The tweet was sent at the beginning of Halloween week, according to the school, but the password was set to “no password” because students are required to wear a mask at school.
The tweet was about Halloween costume parties that were held at two schools.
The school tweeted that it has been contacted by the police and the school district, but has not confirmed whether it has taken disciplinary action.
A tweet from the private account was sent to the account @mitchkurzman.
The account did not respond to messages left with its Twitter handle.
The Twitter account is registered to a private, non-existent Twitter user named Mitch Kurzman, according a cached copy of the account’s profile.
The profile says that it was created in January, but it’s not clear when the account was created.
The public account was verified in July.
Twitter did not immediately respond to a request for comment about the Twitter account or if the account had been suspended.
The Twitter account has more than 4,500 followers.
