On Friday morning (March 30), a swastika and ‘KKK’ were found painted on the Spirit Rock in front of Highline High School.

Workers immediately painted over the offensive, racist symbols.

“We will investigate and take appropriate disciplinary action,” Principal Vicki Fisher said. “Hate speech in any form is unacceptable at Highline High School. We will not tolerate words or actions that are meant to harass, intimidate or denigrate any group or individual. We are committed to being a school where all students and staff feel safe, respected and valued.”

Anyone with information about the defacing of the Spirit Rock is being asked to report it to Principal Fisher, or to district security at 206-631-7600.

This is not the first time that a controversial message has been painted on the school’s Spirit Rock – on June 7, 2017, someone painted a political message over a gay pride symbol, prompting a school-wide series of community meetings – read our previous coverage here.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Fisher at 206-631-6700 or [email protected].
