Shelley School District has an unexpected expense because of unknown persons who vandalized the old Goodsell Elementary School, now called the District Service Center.
It is thought three individuals gained entrance to the school on Sunday afternoon or Sunday evening.
"All the fire extinguishers were set off and they trashed the place," said Special Education Director Jeff Brandt. "Sixty to 100 fluorescent bulbs were broken; glass was all over the place."
The vandals also upended 50-gallon jugs of water for the water cooler.
A fine dust from the fire extinguishers covered the halls and rooms. Because of the dust, police were able to identify the footprints of three individuals, at least the sole prints of their shoes.
