Thomasville - Cross Creek Elementary and Garrison-Pilcher schools in Thomasville were damaged by vandals. Crews were still working this morning to replace glass in windows and doors that were busted out on Saturday night. Light fixtures were ruined, as well as a mailbox that has stood in front of the school for years.

Assistant Principal, Dr. Scott James, says, "When your town is lucky enough to come through a storm, relatively unscathed, and then you get a phone call to hear about your school being damaged by vandals, it kind of puts a bad taste in your mouth."

James says the vandalism has not effected classes at the schools.
