BONANZA, Ore. — The Klamath County School District shuttered both Bonanza school buildings on Monday after an apparent act of vandalism over the weekend, officials confirm.
Bonanza Junior & Senior High School administrators posted on Facebook about the school closure Sunday night, saying that the facilities would remain closed "due to unforeseen circumstances" until further notice.
KCSD officials confirmed Monday that several youth entered Bonanza Elementary School and the High School around 6 p.m. on Sunday, discharging fire extinguishers inside. The resulting damage and mess caused officials to close the schools.
Summer school classes were scheduled to begin Monday, but KCSD said that they were canceled so that staff can work on clean-up.
According to KCSD, the Klamath County Sheriff's Office is investigating the vandalism. It was not immediately clear whether the youth responsible have yet been identified.
Bonanza High School held graduation ceremonies for seniors on June 5, with 20 students receiving their diplomas.
