LAKE PLACID - An act of vandalism at the Lake Placid Middle-High School delayed classes for one hour on Thursday morning.
Custodians reported at about 6:05 a.m. Thursday that intruders had entered the building through a side door and vandalized it by smashing eggs and spilling milk, according to the school district's superintendent, Randy Richards.
Richards said village police were contacted immediately. He said an investigation into the incident is under way and that as of about 7:40 this morning, officials were still looking through the building.
"We had to have the delay in order to clean up," Richards said.
"The school district is interested in information leading to the apprehension of the vandals," he added. "People can contact administration or police anonymously with any information."
Late last year, vandals entered the middle-high school and intentionally flooded sinks and water fountains, causing extensive damage to several classrooms. The perpetrators were never apprehended.
"We held an investigation but could not definitively prove who did it," Richards said.
