Midway Middle School and Liberty Elementary School both were vandalized sometime over the weekend, according to Liberty County School System Assistant Superintendent Jason Rogers.

At the middle school, 17 classrooms were disturbed. Papers and files had been tossed around, and a television and a printer were broken.

At the elementary school, one room reportedly was in complete upheaval. Files had been strewn about and computer monitors were busted. The vandals also targeted a break room, where they busted a soda machine and several light bulbs.

Children at both schools whose classrooms were affected currently are being held in the gym until the rooms are cleaned up.

Rogers said at both schools, the vandals gained entry by prying grates off the air conditioning vents and climbing in.
