Point Loma Elementary School Tagged With Anti-Semitic Symbol

A Point Loma elementary school was tagged with two swastikas overnight Wednesday and police are investigating the incident, the San Diego Unified School District said. 

The graffiti was found written with surf wax in the parking lot of Loma Portal Elementary School Wednesday morning, according to a letter sent the same day to family members from Principal Mark Morici.

Both the San Diego Police Department and the San Diego School Police Department were notified and investigating the incident.

The letter did not say if patrol would be increased at the school as a result. 

Morici called the graffiti "concerning" and said the "hateful action" will not be tolerated. 

"I want to assure you that there is no place for hate at Loma Portal. We focus each day on kindness, positivity, and inclusivity so that all students and families feel a sense of belonging to the LP community," the letter read.

Anyone with information related to the case was asked to call SDUSD police at (619) 291-7678.
