Central Marin police are investigating hate graffiti that was found on the side of a building at Sir Francis Drake High School in San Anselmo last week.
The school's principal sent out a letter on Friday to the school community addressing the incident that happened May 17. The letter from Principal Liz Seabury describes the graffiti found on the school's bus barn as a swastika, crosshairs, hate speech, and other insulting, intentionally provocative language.
Both the police and the school are treating the incident as hate motivated, the letter said.
"Behavior motivated by hate and prejudice that targets even one student on our campus or in our community wounds us all and is an affront to what we stand for and strive to demonstrate," Saebury wrote in the letter. "This incident caused our community to be the target of a hateful barrage of symbols and words intended to intimidate and cause fear. We will not stand for that."
The letter said if a student from Drake is involved, the school will consider discipline options to the full extent, including expulsion.
