Two swastikas have been found at Ridgefield High School. Officials have not disclosed where the graffiti was found spray painted. A statement on intolerance was released by school officials Friday morning.
The school principal sent a letter home to parents saying that those who create such illustrations offend everyone in the Ridgefield High School community and that this will never be considered acceptable behavior. The principal's letter went on to say that this type of behavior does not represent the type of school they strive to be or a school where every student and staff member receives the benefits of human kindness. Stacey Gross said in the letter that the acts were an attempt to “weaken our conscience, poison our spirit, and destroy the freedom of all of us.”
It is unknown whether or not the school has identified a person of interest.
