AUSTIN — Bowie High School has canceled classes and events Thursday and Friday after a man threw rocks at several windows and doors on campus, causing lots of damage.

Security cameras captured the man throwing rocks and breaking more than 100 windows and glass doors.


Officials said the reason for the cancelation was because when the windows broke, asbestos was exposed and now the district has to remove it. Which is hard for parents.

"It really does impact the kids," said Theresa Bastain, the PTSA Vice-President. "It's a pretty blatant act of vandalism, there were at least 100 windows that were broken."

Also, students are a little concerned over the damage, but the communities response gives them hope.

"It's very rare to find a community that's supportive of a school," said Joey Mata.

The community is able to help by donations for anything damaged inside, or to help students and faculty feel more welcomed when school does open up.
