Update on the Palmer Schools:

The following statement has been provided from Superintendent of the Palmer Public School District Patricia Gardner:

"Last night during a wonderful Athletic Award Ceremony celebrating girls and boys varsity/jv soccer, field hockey, and golf, and individual or individuals spray painted graffiti-type threatening messages on the sign at the entrance to Palmer High School and Old Mill Pond. While we have no reason to believe that the threat is or was imminent, the Palmer Schools and the Palmer Police Department decided that canceling school tomorrow (December 1) gives us the opportunity for the Palmer Police Department to investigate this matter. We fully expect to be back in school at the regular time on Friday.

Palmer Public Schools will not condone this type of behavior. We are offering a $500 reward to anyone providing information leading to the identity of the individual or individuals who are responsible for this threat. We intend to prosecute to the full extent of the law. Please contact the Palmer Police Department with any information. "

The graffiti has since last night been removed from the bulletin board.
