PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A Portland high school was subjected to graffiti overnight.
According to reports on social media, someone defaced and damaged part of Ulysses S. Grant High School in Northeast Portland on Tuesday night. A KOIN 6 crew went by the school Wednesday morning and saw graffiti on the sign and entrance of the school, with phrases such as “decolonize” and “gentrified land” spray-painted on the building.
Portland Public Schools told KOIN 6 they are aware of the graffiti, as is the Portland Police Bureau.
“District maintenance staff are cleaning up the graffiti today and we will have extra security staff at the school throughout the week,” PPS Public Information Officer Karen Werstein said.
This is a developing story.
