PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) — A noose was found in a mechanical room at Chapman Elementary School in northwest Portland, according to a letter sent home to parents.
Principal Pamela Van Der Wolf wrote that a member of the maintenance staff discovered the noose this week. The mechanical room is typically only used by custodial and maintenance staff.
“This act is incredibly disturbing, and hate speech is never tolerated in any PPS school or anywhere in our district,” the principal’s letter states.
The Portland Police Bureau was contacted and officers responded to conduct an investigation.
Van Der Wolf said that there is no indication any students witnessed or were involved in this case.
