Threatening graffiti painted on the roof of Second Hill Lane Elementary School prompted school officials to call police Wednesday before the vandalism was quickly removed, News 12 Connecticut reports.

The graffiti, which was spotted during recess, read "death 2 thee kids," according to News 12.

Officials tell the news channel that they are taking the incident "very seriously" and are increasing security at the elementary school and upping patrols on local streets.

Stratford school officials could not immediately be reached for comment.

Has the our Mayor made comment on this yet? I cant seem to find anything. He was the one that said that using police at the schools will never happen during the Sandy Hook meeting. If he has made comment to this sickening occurrence please post the link in the comments area.

This is sickening. I am keeping my youngest home as much doesn't seem to be happening. Kids can't even be safe in school now. What a shame!

News channels should advice anyone with information on this to report it...anonymous or not...anyone who is involved in this obviously needs help.

How ironic is it that graffiti on a school seems to have been perpetuated by somebody of limited literacy skills?

Let us not forget that it only takes one anti-social, angry child or adult with a can of spray paint to create this type of reaction. It's only when there is no warning at all that people must fear. A recent "hate crime" in Mass. where racist comments were painted on the house of a mixed racial couple resulted in the woman doing it herself and not "racists".
