are anticipating they will soon be making arrests in a vandalism incident at that damaged sports equipment, a field and covered three areas of the school with spray paint.
Police said significant damage was done at the school overnight Thursday and into the early-morning hours of Friday. Investigators are reviewing video from multiple security cameras in the area affected by the vandalism.
"We are deeply disappointed with the actions of a group of students," Pearl River Superintendent of Schools Dr. John Morgano said. "Their behavior was disrespectful not only to the school, but to their peers and to a community that has been so supportive of our students as well.
"The district will press charges against any students involved."
Hurdles used for track and field events were dragged out of their storage area and damaged, as was a portable baseball fence. A field was also damaged by equipment that was dragged across the area.
Police said three exterior areas were spray-painted and will require extensive cleaning to remove the paint. There was no damage reported inside the high school in connection with this incident. According to school officials, the current financial estimate for the damages is $2,500.
Multiple students from the high school are suspected with being involved in the vandalism, police said.
