“At this time, the district does not have an estimate on the cost to repair the broken windows, but will repair the damage as soon as possible,” a district spokeswoman told News Center 7′s Mike Campbell.

The damage was discovered by staff members at the school, who contacted Dayton Police to investigate.

 “I was very devastated, school’s already not opening up, we have to do this, it will be even longer,” said parent Bas’shell Starks. “It’s just difficult to deal with, especially with this pandemic going on.”

Louise Troy typically is the home for many students Kindergarten through 5th grade, but with school this year starting remote students aren’t going to the school.

The damage appeared to be caused by a BB or pellet gun.

Surveillance cameras are located around the outside of the building and News Center 7 has requested that footage to see if the vandal or vandals were caught doing the damage.
