On Thursday, November 28, the Quincy Police Department discovered a defacement of school property at the Beechwood Knoll Elementary School.  The Quincy Police Department, along with Quincy Public Schools Security, are currently investigating this act of vandalism.

The graffiti included a swastika, but is in no way indicative of the inclusive and welcoming nature of our City and certainly of this extraordinary caring neighborhood.  We will be sharing information with staff, parents, and most importantly, with our students on Monday to increase community and student understanding and to reinforce the negative aspects of this action as so very hurtful and unacceptable. The letter below will be shared with Beechwood Knoll families today.
