HANSON — Whitman-Hanson Regional School District Superintendent Jeffrey Szymaniak and Hanson Police Chief Michael Miksch report that racist graffiti was found outside the Indian Head Elementary School this week.
During an open house event on Tuesday, Aug. 31, a parent noticed the graffiti on a light pole outside the school. The parent then reported it to a police officer on detail.
