Yorktown School District employee finds racial epithet written on her car

An employee of the Yorktown Central School District discovered a racial epithet written on her car Tuesday.

Yorktown Central School District Superintendent Gordon Bruno says he has called a meeting of the district crisis response team to help deal with the recent incidents. Bruno says earlier in the week a swastika was found scrawled along a walkway at the high school. He says there were also an incident of vandalism at the Crompond Elementary School recently.

School officials are working with the police and say the perpetrators will be prosecuted. Bruno says parents and students need to discuss issues of tolerance to combat this kind of behavior. School officials are considering adding surveillance cameras or extra security to prevent more incidents of hate graffiti.Related storyOffensive etchings found on Crompond Elementary School in Yorktown
