Cheshire school fights back after the N-word written on wall facing playground

New Haven

CHESHIRE, Conn. (WTNH) — A Cheshire school is fighting back after a symbol of hate showed up on a school building.

It happened at Doolittle School a couple of weeks ago. Someone wrote the N-word in bright red letters on the brick wall facing the playground.

Wednesday night the school released a statement saying, in part: “Hate has no place in our community, period. Whether it is a disgusting act of vandalism, social media post, or in the unacceptable ways in which some people treat others, we must actively address these words and behaviors.”

No word yet on any suspects.
