Weather station vandalized


Someone vandalized the school weather station over the weekend. The station was broken to splinters; thermometers broken and leads pulled out; rain gauge broken off; snow depth meter pulled up. The students in the three grades conducting studies there were all ready to go get data Monday noon. Now they can’t. Several people have put quite a bit of effort into building and maintaining that station. Why? If anyone has any information about this, please let the police know.
