Acts of Vandalism

Dear Bella Mente Families,

We would like to make you aware of numerous acts of vandalism to our school restrooms and ask for your help. To date this school year, we have experienced $10,000 worth of damage to plumbing, restroom fixtures and infrastructure. Our buildings are meant to be a safe, clean space for our students and staff and we will not tolerate the destruction and theft of school property. Replacing and repairing these items is very costly and takes precious time away from other priorities. Beyond this, our custodial team works very hard to serve our student population and keep our campus clean and safe.

At Bella Mente, we expect all students to be Responsible, Respectful, Safe and Productive. Due to the high value of damage experienced, Bella Mente has been in contact with law enforcement.


Please speak with your children about appropriate bathroom behavior and remind them that vandalism is criminal behavior. Parents can be held legally and financially responsible for these acts of vandalism.

Let’s work together to put a stop to this now. We are asking for the entire community to partner with us to eliminate this behavior on our campus. If you have any information regarding these incidents, please contact me at or use our anonymous reporting app, STOPit, found on our website.

Thank you for partnering with us to keep our school and students safe. We look forward to your continued partnership.

Best Wishes,

James Proby
