School principal apologizes for inappropriate photo

DELAND, Fla. – DeLand High School sent a message to parents Friday, apologizing for an inappropriate Twitter post.

A photo of a partially nude woman was retweeted, essentially reposted from another person's account, to the school's Twitter account Thursday causing confusion and concern among parents and students.

"I am calling to inform you our school's Twitter account was hacked," the message said.

News 6 reached out to the woman in the photo and learned she is a 22-year-old woman from Dallas. She said she had no connections to Volusia County.
