The St. Helena College and Career Academy was broken into over the weekend for the second time since the school opened about a year ago, the parish superintendent said.
Someone broke a glass door in the front office area and damaged a door leading into the principal’s office, Superintendent Kelli Joseph said. Monday morning, authorities were still surveying the damage, though Joseph said it appeared to be “minimal.”
The superintendent suspects students may be to blame but isn’t sure what anyone would have wanted in the principal’s office, saying it doesn’t contain objects of great value.
The incident marks the second break-in at the year-old school, which teaches St. Helena students in seventh through 12th grade. Previously, a group of students got inside and stole food, though Joseph said like the weekend break-in, they caused little damage.
