DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A Florida elementary school trashed over the weekend has damaged 18 classrooms and displaced 360 students.
School officials and police have declined to detail the damage at Horizon Elementary School but a parent wrote in a Facebook post that vandals had broken windows and computers, stole personal property and school technology and destroyed the children’s art work.
A history teacher at a nearby high school said businesses, including Walmart, Chick-Fil-A, banks and others promised donations including computers, desks, glass windows, textbooks, laptops and projectors.
The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports that some students returned to their classrooms Wednesday. Other classrooms may take several days before they are fully functional.
Police are also investigating a threatening note that was scribbled on a desk.
