Maryland Middle School Students Discover Swastika

A swastika was found in front of Kingsview Middle School in Germantown Thursday morning as staff and students were arriving to start the school day.

Staff at the school removed the graffiti as soon as it was noticed, according to a letter from Principal Dyan Harrison. School officials and the Montgomery County Police were notified.

“To be clear, discrimination in any form must not be tolerated,” Harrison wrote in a letter to school parents and guardians.

“Kingsview Middle School is rooted in a tradition that celebrates our diversity and demonstrates academic excellence. This type of behavior is totally unacceptable and will not be tolerated,” Harrison wrote.

Some schools throughout the district have experienced an uptick in antisemitism since the Oct. 7 attack by Hamas on Israel and the ensuing war in Gaza.
