Cleveland High School was hit by vandals over the holiday weekend.
A message was sent to students, staff, and administration, notifying them that the campus incurred “significant vandalism and damage.”
Graffiti was spray-painted on a wall near the football field and reportedly on other structures that had just been installed.
Rio Rancho Public Schools is offering a $500 reward for information leading to the arrest of the offenders. Anyone with information is asked to contact Cleveland High School security or the Rio Rancho Police Department.
Cleveland High School issued this statement:
“Over the winter break, V. Sue Cleveland High School was vandalized on two occasions. Last week, rocks were thrown at the school atrium breaking two windows. No entry was made into the school. It was reported to law enforcement and they responded.
In addition, earlier this week, graffiti was spray painted on some fences, parking lot and sidewalks. We will work cooperatively with law enforcement to assist in identifying the vandals involved in the incident.
Vandalism incidents of this nature are disruptive and result in countless hours of work. If anyone has any information on this incident, please reach out to Rio Rancho Public Schools or the Rio Rancho Police Department.”
