Home of the Sharks struck by vandals

Guam - Vandals strike yet again - this time, at Simon Sanchez High School. For the last several weeks, the school's faculty and maintenance crews have worked to prepare the campus for re-inspection only to be setback by today's events.

Around six o'clock this morning school officials arrived to the Home of the Sharks to discover vandalism to the main office and counseling office. The place was tagged with graffiti evidently from spray paint found on campus in storage room. And it gets worse, according to Assistant Principal Rebecca Duenas.

The vandals torched some files and then used a fire extinguisher to put it out and spray the foam in the hallways. Although nothing was reported stolen according to private cleaning contractor JJ Global's Shelly Rebelkuul, it's definitely a blow to the massive cleanup that's been underway since the school was shutdown several weeks ago.

"Delay on all our parts. We have everything planned when we come in and we see this. For some of us we can't breathe. For the rest of us it's just extra work. It's completely frustrating. I just hope they get caught," she explained.

Earlier this week KUAM News reported that Sanchez High was 90% ready for re-inspection - with today's vandalism, school officials are not sure when they will be ready for re-inspection.
