Highland vandalism

This photo shows vandalism inflicted on a Highland High School bathroom.

POCATELLO — While Highland is the school pictured, this activity is occurring at all three high schools and now the middle schools.

Parents/Guardians: Please be aware that there is a current “trend” on social media encouraging the stealing or destruction of items in schools and school classrooms.

Please speak to your children about this issue and help them to understand that vandalism on school property will be referred to local law enforcement.

Items such as soap dispensers, paper towel dispensers, and toilet paper dispensers are being damaged beyond repair, ripped off walls and/or stolen.

Our maintenance staff is working hard to replace the damaged or stolen items, only to find that the behavior is occurring repeatedly.

Disciplinary action will be taken for any individuals that are identified as participating in these acts of vandalism.

Please work to help us prevent this destructive behavior to preserve the maintenance, safety, and pride of our schools.
