Tracey Carson, spokeswoman for Mason Schools, said “we have had issues as the weather has been getting warmer with teens leaving walking home after school gets out - middle school mostly - leaving trash at the Mason Elementary and Mason Intermediate parking lot.”
But this type of incident is a new one, said Carson.
“We had not had antisemitic or lewd graffiti before and appreciate how our community stepped up and shared on our tip line and the City of Mason’s Campus Safety Team support in investigating,” she said.
The school system, which has three schools – Mason High School, Mason Intermediate and Mason Elementary – on one shared campus dissected by Mason-Montgomery Road, has long been a leader among southwest Ohio districts in employing dozens of security cameras inside and around its school buildings.
“Mason City Schools and the City of Mason Campus Safety Team are asking for the public’s help to identify the suspects. If you recognize the individuals or have information about this incident, please call 513-229-8560,” the district said.
