A student at an elementary school in Carmichael on Wednesday found a drawing of a Nazi swastika in a student bathroom on campus, officials said. Juliann Wolney, the principal at Del Dayo Elementary School, said in a message to parents that the student saw the Nazi swastika drawing during the lunch break. The swastika, an antisemitic symbol commonly used by hate groups, was found on the wall of a bathroom stall. The swastika found at the Carmichael school came three days after campus staff found graffiti with antisemitic language and symbols at another San Juan Unified School District campus. That graffiti was removed before students arrived on campus Monday morning. Raj Rai, a spokeswoman for the school district, said on Thursday there’s no indication that the antisemitic graffiti found Wednesday at Del Dayo is related to the antisemitic vandalism found at the Gold River Discovery Center, a K-8 school in the community of Gold River. Rai said a single drawing of a swastika was found at Del Dayo; no other graffiti was found on the campus. The student who spotted the graffiti at Del Dayo on Wednesday reported it to school staff. Wolney said staff responded immediately and removed the drawing. “Our school stands for respect and inclusion, and Del Dayo is a place where all are welcome and appreciated,” Wolney said in a message to parents. “Actions, symbols or language that exclude or demean others are not in alignment with our school community’s standards and will not be tolerated.”
