Last Tuesday, an overnight vandalism spree forced a temporary closure of the campus and adjacent school facilities. A maintenance employee arriving for work at around 5 a.m. discovered the extensive destruction and defacement, which included graffiti, broken windows, hurled furniture and discharged fire extinguishers. 

The vandalism was extensive enough to require a full day closure of the entire campus. Repairs and restoration costs are estimate at more than $40,000.
