Students, teachers and staff walked onto the Tokay High School campus Friday morning and found it vandalized with vulgarities in rival red.

At approximately 7 a.m., students and school administrators arrived to find boastful and offensive phrases written on classroom windows in red window paint, as well as toilet paper, red string and confetti strung out on the campus, according to English teacher Emily Epperson.

    Julie, I'm shocked you would think for even a second it "could have been Tokay students looking to make Lodi look bad."

    It is a shame that this sort of stuff still goes on these days, but high school kids do not use the best judgement. In 77-78 a group of 4 LHS boys painted up THS with "ASSS." Eventually one of their big mouths brought them down and it was discovered it was their 4 initials. Two of these vandals are now doctors in town.

    It's too bad that kids feel it necessary to do those things. Not necessary to go over there and be boastful if it was Lodi students. We just prove it out on the field anyway. Not very smart to basically put your name on it, you never know, could have been Tokay students looking to make Lodi look bad.

    Jerome, what planet do you live on?

    Of course it was a Lodi High student.

    Great win last night for the FLAMES!

    With all due respect to Principal Lofsted, why would anyone ever get the idea that such destruction of property could be "ok?" Since it is clearly not, why should they now be counseled that it is "not ok?" Even a third grader would know that this is disgraceful.

    I also wonder why an apology was offered by Lodi High School's principal if no one as of yet has even been questioned. Simply because the phrase "Lodi is better" and "white string" were amongst other degrading comments left behind by these miscreants, if I were Mr. Lofsted I'd wait until actual evidence would prove that it was one or more of his students; unless of course he already knows differently.
