Bayport-Blue Point school district administrators are meeting with students in an effort to deter future toilet paper decorating on school property and asking parents to share the same message at home.
Unknown vandals toilet papered the high school lawn on the first day of school and also sometime this past Monday evening. Students and staff arrived early Tuesday to see even greater amounts of toilet paper hanging from trees and wrapped around tree trunks.
are disappointed in the actions of those responsible for defacing our
school grounds with toilet paper earlier today and on the first day of
school," new high school principal Dr. Gaurav Passi told Patch in an email Tuesday.
Passi said the administration is investigating the incident to identify those responsible and also taking steps to hopefully stop future activity. School leaders met with student leaders Tuesday to discuss the issue.
"We also asked for their help and their support in spreading
the message that this behavior is not acceptable. Administrators will be
meeting with our entire student body throughout the day tomorrow
to continue to address this issue," wrote Passi.
"It is also our hope that parents
will take this opportunity to speak with their children about the impact
that this behavior has on our school and our neighbors," he added, noting that the district is thankful to students who volunteered to clean up on the first day and those who are helping out in this week's cleanup, as well as buildings and grounds crew.
