Sometime during the weekend of Nov. 15 and 16, at least 25 Peninsula School District buses were marked with offensive graffiti.

According to Julie Richards, community outreach assistant, the dirty work was first noticed when transportation employees arrived to work early Monday morning. She said cleanup was only possible on some buses before they needed to be on the road to pick up students.  

“Please know our transportation department is working diligently to remove the offensive language. This is an unfortunate incident and the district will conduct an investigation,” Richards said in a written statement.
