In social media postings, the Italy Independent School District says its students were told Monday that Noelle Jones is continuing her recovery with her family at an undisclosed location.

The district says her family is optimistic about her recovery but asks for continued prayers for her.

Authorities have not released her name.

She was shot multiple times Jan. 22 in the Italy High School cafeteria.

A 16-year-old boy who attended the school has been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He remains in juvenile custody.

Italy is 42 miles south of Dallas and has about 1,900 residents.
