Mobile County

MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) — School officials at St. John’s School for Tomorrow say they walked on campus Monday morning to find broken windows, knocked-out doors, and disheveled conditions inside the classrooms.

You can see the damage in the video attached to this article.

They tell us nothing was taken, so they believe the suspects were looking for money. Administrators made the decision Monday morning to class. Some students had already arrived, but were sent home.

School officials say they filed a police report.

School will be back in session Tuesday, officials changed the locks.

But they say it was still a scary scene to walk into Monday morning.

“The children were very afraid because we couldn’t answer them,” said School Administrator Pastor Kylynn McMillan. “While I was with them, they said they did not feel safe. They were upset that someone would do that. And they were also upset they had gotten to school, and couldn’t start their work.”
