Hempfield Area School District officials are trying to determine the identities of vandals who cut down three small trees outside the high school on the last day of school Thursday, superintendent Andy Leopold said.

“I guess the Class of 2013 didn't want to be forgotten,” he said.

He believes the tree were cut sometime overnight.

Leopold said there are cameras located outside the high school, stadium and field house, but not along Spartan Drive where the trees were cut.
