Lame Deer School Cleanup

Posted: Updated:
LAME DEER -

Days after vandalism caused extensive damage at Lame Deer Elementary School, teachers and volunteers are working long days to clean up the mess.

Paint and glue is splattered on walls, floors, and computer screens. Nearly 60 Apple iPads were stolen, as well as dozens of laptops, according to Lame Deer School Board Member Richard McLean. He says a lot of the stolen technology will not be replaced anytime soon, because of budget issues.

"It's something that's not condoned here," he said of the vandalism. "It's not the Cheyenne way of doing things. It's just wrong."

Students return to school on Monday, August 26th.

Calls to Lame Deer Superintendent Bill Parker went unreturned. The Bureau of Indian Affairs declined to comment, saying the investigation is ongoing.
