WILTON, Conn. (WTNH) — The principal of Wilton High School wants to make it clear, there is no place for intolerance at the school. This after a swastika was discovered scratched into a student’s locker.
It happened on Monday and, in a letter to parents, the principal said the locker was fixed immediately. Principal Robert William O’Donnell also told parents, school officials were able to quickly identify the student responsible and spoke with everyone involved.
The letter did not say what kind of punishment the student may be facing, but did say “symbols of hatred, racism and anti-Semitism have no place” in the school’s vision.
Principal O’Donnell says, going forward the school will come up with a plan of action to deal with situations of this nature. Part of that plan will include working with the student government to find ways to prevent similar incidents from happening in the future.
