School district fights back at vandalism

-A A +A


Officials will conduct a special meeting at 5 p.m. Wednesday in Suite 5 near the school administration building at 2075 Trinity Drive with the Los Alamos School Board to discuss recent vandalism at Piñon Elementary.

The aim is to get the board to approve a $1,000 reward for any information leading to an arrest.

The vandals apparently struck Jan. 25, spray-painting the front of the school with “vulgar and inappropriate words and phrases,” LAPS Superintendent Dr. Gene Schmidt said in a written statement.

“As a community, we should not put up with this senseless disregard and marring of our public property,” Schmidt said.

The district is asking anyone who has information about the incident to call the police at 662-8222. Anonymity will be respected.
