Multiple students and parents have confirmed that the photo was real.
- Journalist Jules Suzdaltsev tweeted a prom photo of male students from Baraboo High School that appeared to show them giving a Nazi salute:
If anybody from Baraboo High School in Wisconsin can clue me in on why it appears the entire male class of 2018 is throwing up a Sig Heil during their prom photos - that would be great.— Jules Suzdaltsev (@jules_su) November 12, 2018

Suzdaltsev initially claimed that the photo featured the Class of 2018 but he quickly corrected this and explained it was the Class of 2019.
Multiple students began reaching out to confirm the photo was real, and to explain the circumstances that led to it being taken:
I spoke with the only student who is visibly not comfortable with the “salute”, he provided this statement. pic.twitter.com/HbNBc8xLOK— Jules Suzdaltsev (@jules_su) November 12, 2018
- In a letter to parents, district Superintendent Lisa Mueller asserted that the photo was not taken on school grounds.
