Administrators and police are investigating a series of bigoted messages that were scrawled onto bathroom walls at Easton Area High School Tuesday afternoon.
Building administrators were made aware of the messages — which were bigoted in nature and referenced “10/14/21” but lacked specifics — around 2 p.m., Principal Kyle Geiger said in an email sent to parents.
A photo of the message circulated on local social media groups show the threat, which reads, “Don’t f****** come 2 school at 10/14/21 or I’ll be seeing you in hell,” followed by a homophobic slur.
A second photo shows multiple racial slurs, “N****** MUST DIE” and the phrase “white lives matter.”
“All situations like this are taken very seriously and the health, welfare, and safety of our students and staff will always remain our top priority,” Geiger writes.
The school district’s police department and high school administrators are working to investigate the incident while working alongside Palmer Township police to increase security for the rest of the week, Geiger said.
Meanwhile, anyone with information that could assist the investigation is asked to contact the Easton Area High School Administration or Supervisor of Safe Schools John Remaley.
