Three juvenile girls have been cited for their role in the recent vandalism at North Hudson Elementary and to several cars in the surrounding neighborhood.
Police received information from a parent of one of the girls about the participants. Following interviews, each of the girls was cited for disorderly conduct. They will also make restitution for the time and supplies needed by the school custodian to remove the vandalism from the school doors and walls.
The vandals used colored chalk to write profanity, obscenities and racist and homophobic speech at 15 different locations around the school, mostly on doors and windows. The damage was discovered by a North Hudson Police officer doing a building check around 3 a.m. on April 28.
After being notified by the police, the school custodian was able to clean the grounds before students arrived Monday morning.
In a letter to parents, North Hudson Elementary Principal Dolf Schmidt said the girls involved are not students at the school.
