LOWNDES CO., GA (WALB) -

Administrators confirmed that hate speech spray painted graffiti on parts of Lowndes High School has been cleaned up, but those responsible for the act have not been caught.

The graffiti was said to be on and around the school's special education classrooms.

Residents and students shared photos of the vandalism on Facebook and Snapchat Friday morning and afternoon.

Some who shared the photos online blamed the school's seniors, but officials did not immediately say who was believed to be responsible.

"You should be ashamed of yourself, seniors (not all seniors, but a few). Writing this on the Special Ed room.." one person said on Facebook.

It was the last day of classes for seniors, and they had been pulling pranks all week, however some students say this took it way too far.

"They make us look bad.. everything comes on us. People who don't do it, they get in trouble too," said senior student Najee Moore.

Lowndes High administrators said they were "working diligently" to find out who was responsible, and were reviewing the school's surveillance camera footage.

"Be smart, don't do stupid stuff. You will get in trouble and you will get caught doing this. Learn from this," said Moore.

The school also said students came to the aid of custodial and maintenance staff and administrators to help clean up the mess.

By early Friday morning, 95 percent of the graffiti had been cleaned up, officials reported. Everything was cleaned up by noon that day.

Administrators said anyone found responsible for the vandalism would be "disciplined appropriately."
