Acts of vandalism occur all over Prince Rupert School District

Three Prince Rupert schools were the target for vandals last month.

February proved to be a frustrating month in terms of maintenance for the Prince Rupert School District, with several acts of vandalism taking place all over the district.

Conrad Elementary was hit the hardest, with three windows being smashed by vandals – one at the kindergarten room and two in the Resource Center adjacent to the parking lot. This is the second time in three months that vandals have smashed windows at Conrad.

There was previously a camera located near the Resource Center to avoid situations like this, however a neighbour of the school asked that the camera be removed, as it recorded a minimal portion of their home. Now, with all the recent acts of vandalism, the camera will once again be put outside.

Even with a camera, the old Westview building also fell victim to vandalism last month. A male in his early teens smashed a surveillance camera at the north end of the school, after spending 15 minutes throwing a basketball and rocks at the camera. Efforts are being made to identify the male using video recorded from the camera before it was broken.

Prince Rupert Middle School also had a repeat attack on the emergency lighting in the school’s elevator. For the second time in two months, the emergency lighting had to be repaired due to vandalism.
