SCHOOL cheerleaders were sent an unsettling team photo marked with a pentagram and the chilling phrase “Cheer is Evil”.
The letter “X” and the haunting words “13 sacrifices” were scrawled on some of the faces of students at Mountain View High School in Orem, Utah.
The student responsible for the “threat” has since been identified, according to Fox13.
In a statement, Alpine School District officials told the outlet that student safety is their priority and that such behavior will “not be tolerated”.
It is not known whether the person who sent the chilling images was school or student related.
One said the school didn’t respond when officials were asked by cheerleaders’ parents if their child should be dropped from school, according to Fox13.
However, Principal Mike Ericksen and Vice Principal Mickelle Bos said the school was working with the cheerleader coach to investigate the incident.
A letter from the school read: “We know the parties involved in the threat, and we have taken appropriate action to ensure your students are safe.”
Trying to reassure parents, Ericksen said: “We take the safety of our students very seriously. In this regard, we can say with 100% certainty that we have addressed the threat and taken appropriate disciplinary action.
“We are unable to discuss the specifics regarding this matter, as we value the privacy of all of our students.”
The threat came only a few months later Cheerleader Tristyn Bailey murdered in the May.
Teens Aiden Fucci is suspected of killing Tristyn by stabbing her 114 times.
The female fan was found dead in the woods near Fucci’s home on Mother’s Day after her family reported her missing.
Fucci, who is being prosecuted as an adult regardless of age, told police a An argument broke out between the couple as they walk home from a friend’s house in the early hours of the morning.
Fucci last appeared in court in October and his next appearance is scheduled for February 2.

He was also heard asking, “Why am I here?” follow a WTLV reporter.
Fucci also said: “I just want to talk to my mom and dad.”
