A swastika was burned into the asphalt near the playground of a Denver public elementary school.
Gasoline was used to burn the antisemitic symbol at Ellis Elementary School on Monday night, the Denver Post reported
. The swastika was covered up before students arrived at school the following morning, according to the report.
The vandalism is being investigated as a bias incident. The school contacted the Anti-Defamation League to help deal with the incident, including providing resource material, according to the newspaper.
The principal and district superintendent sent letters to parents condemning the incident.
