Anti-Semitic graffiti at Lake Harriet Upper
Thursday, August 1, 2019 3:20 PM

You may hear reports in the news or on social media of anti-Semitic graffiti on the doors of the Lake Harriet Upper campus. Superintendent Graff made the following statement

“In the strongest terms, Minneapolis Public Schools condemns the anti-Semitic attack on our schools and community. We are working closely with the Minneapolis Police Department to find out who did this. Our schools should be safe, respectful and welcoming places for all of our students, families and community members. And we stand united against hatred in all its forms.”

Acts like this have no place in our society, especially in our schools. We encourage you not to share the image or give it additional attention on social media. That is exactly what people hope for when they do things like this, and we should avoid giving them any attention—because they deserve none.
