Sometime over the weekend, Steffi Woima Elementary School in Sylvan Lake was vandalized with spray paint.

Chinook's Edge School Division became aware of the issue and were able to remove some of the paint. According to the school's facebook page, damage to the brick was extensive so a professional sandblasting company will be needed to clean up the wall.

Unfortunately solvents would cause more damage and are not an option. One section of the entire west wall has been damaged.

There has been no information released so far by Sylvan Lake RCMP in regard to possible suspects.
