    Police are being asked to investigate after swastikas and other offensive graffiti were found at a Massachusetts school.

    Superintendent Linda Dwight of Harvard Public Schools sent an email to parents Friday saying that a rock in front of the Bromfield School had been vandalized with swastikas, homophobic symbols and racist words. One of the swastikas was marked over a Jewish Star of David.

    Dwight said the school district condemns the graffiti and has asked police to investigate. Police in the town of Harvard could not immediately be reached for comment.

    The Bromfield School is located 30 miles west of Boston and teaches about 700 students from sixth grade through high school.

    Last week, officials in nearby Billerica, Massachusetts, said a shuttered elementary school had also been vandalized with a swastika.
