Earlier today, a parent reported to a teacher at the Horace Mann School that a swastika was drawn in the snow. The teacher reported it to the principal and the Melrose Police Department was subsequently notified. A full investigation is now ongoing.

The City of Melrose and the Melrose Public Schools have zero tolerance for this type of hateful behavior. Melrose takes great pride in being an inclusive community where all people feel welcome and safe. We ask any individual who may have knowledge of this act to call the Melrose Police Department immediately at 781-665-1212.
