On May 3, tap teacher Ms. Gail Benedict found her class room disrupted and vandalized from the day before. The window blinds were pulled down, unable to be pulled back up, and footprints were smeared on the walls.

The incident occurred during the last two blocks of Thursday afternoon. “It could have happened after school, but I doubt it,” Ms Benedict said.

“There are outsiders who use our space. Sports teams and classes,” Ms. Benedict said. “But generally there should be a teacher supervising.”

“My humanities class used Ms. Benedict’s classroom for dance presentations the other day,” Elizabeth Wiseman (12) said. “We didn’t mess anything up, but we weren’t supervised. ” Ms. Benedict is requesting that in the case that a student is in need of her class room, they must be escorted by her or Mr. Reedy.
