Message Regarding Incident at CHS

I am writing to let you know about an incident that occurred at CHS yesterday afternoon.  Mr. Smith was made aware of some graffiti and racial slurs that were written on the inside of a bathroom stall in one of the boys' restrooms.  At that point, that restroom was closed and the graffiti was removed.  However, someone took a picture of the graffiti and posted it on social media prior to the restroom being closed.  The administrators are working with the Commerce Police Department to investigate the matter.  A monetary reward has been offered to the student who identifies the person guilty of writing the graffiti.  Mr. Smith made an announcement to all students this morning that this type of behavior will not be tolerated at Commerce High School.  When the student, who wrote the graffiti is identified, the student will be dealt with accordingly.  Any student, who knows anything about who might have written the graffiti, is encouraged to let school administrators know.  Please know that we are doing all that we can to keep all of our students safe.
