SANDWICH – The Sandwich Public School District is condemning the acts of the perpetrators responsible for the vandalism of the high school parking lot last weekend.

On Friday, October 4, four painted parking spots at Sandwich High School were found to have two swastikas and images of male genitalia.

Since then, police have opened a criminal investigation and the school district has launched their own investigation.

In a statement, Superintendent Pamela Gould said that teachers spent class time this week talking with and educating students about what the vandalism means and the consequences to acts like this.

“This is an act that we cannot and will not tolerate,” said Gould. “Having worked in Sandwich, we are very confident that this is not representative of our community or student body. Sandwich is a community that accepts all individuals and will not tolerate hateful acts.”

Gould added that she encourages those involved to take full responsibility for their actions, make amends and restitution and accept appropriate disciplinary action.
