OAKLAND (KCBS)— Students, teachers and parents alike were stunned when they got word that 25 desktop computers were stolen Thursday night from Joaquin Miller Elementary School in Oakland.
The iMacs, valued at $35,000 that were purchased by the PTA, also contained school work that unfortunately wasn’t all backed up.
A disappointed Principal, Paulette Smith, said the computers contained ancestry assignments and year book photos. Saddened and angry, Smith said she “finally broke down” around 3:30.
“25 computers is a lot of computers to carry out of a building,” Smith said.
