Jan. 12, 2007 — Lisa Forde, acting district superintendent for St. Thomas-St. John, issued a warning Thursday to vandals, who for the second consecutive day damaged water pipes at Ivanna Eudora Kean High School.
Students were dismissed early Wednesday afternoon following the rupture of a water pipe and related issues.
It has been determined, following a similar incident which occurred this morning, that the broken water pipes at [the school] are deliberate acts of vandalism, said Forde. We have not determined who the individual or individuals are that perpetrated these acts, however, I would like to make it perfectly clear that anyone found destroying or tampering with government property will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
Forde continued: We further request assistance from students and members of the general public in being the eyes and ears of our schools and report any knowledge of the recent incidents or other suspicious activities to the Office of the Superintendent at 775-2250 or the Police Department at 774-2211.
