Less than two weeks after hate graffiti was discovered at Middleborough High School, a teacher and student at Brookline High School walked into a classroom to find hate graffiti.

According to an email from school principal Anthony Meyer, school officials believe the graffiti was put up after 4 p.m. Tuesday and before 8:15 a.m. Wednesday.

“This sickening display of hate will not be tolerated and we are opening a full-scale investigation in cooperation with Brookline Police,” Meyer wrote.

Meyer also said the student and teacher who discovered the graffiti are supported and the superintendent’s office is aware of the incident.

Students or staff with information about the incident are encouraged to report it to a Dean or Meyer.

“Students, please report any chatter you may hear about this or anything you may see on social media to your dean or a trusted adult,” Meyer wrote. “Your help is essential to find the person responsible for this hatred.”

Late last month, hate messages and symbols were found spray-painted around the perimeter of Middleborough High School, according to WCVB.

The school’s facilities manager discovered the vandalism on the morning of March 27, according to the station, and the graffiti included hateful language and imagery, including a swastika.
