FOX News  “Some paint was scattered through the hallways, all the lockers were open and things were taken out of the lockers and thrown all over the floor,” said Principal Zaheer Arastu.

Arastu said it shocked him to see his school vandalized. He showed FOX23 security footage showing children between the ages of 10 and 12 enter a computer lab and walk down the hallway.

Despite the acts of the vandals, the school and students still had the support of the community. Some came together to clean up quickly to make sure the annual community fun fair could commence as planned.

Parents said they are relieved the vandalism does not appear to be the result of an anti-Muslim hate crime.
