LSHS student disciplined for racist, anti-Semetic graffiti

A Lakeville South High School student is being disciplined for putting racist, anti-Semitic graffiti on a bathroom stall.

According to a short statement on the LSHS website, the graffitit was brought to the attention of school administration Monday.

School maintenance staff began work to repair the damage, according to the statement, which also said the school “will use this as a teachable moment where possible.”

“We take these matters seriously and strive to create a safe, welcoming environment for all students in our schools,” the statement said.

According to social media posts, the graffiti, written in black marker, was scrawled on two public restroom doors and included swastikas, references to people of color and promoted the “Klu Klux Klan” (sic).

The statement said no further comment would be provided due to the “confidential nature of student discipline.”
