ALAMEDA (CBS SF) — A noose was found on the grounds of Alameda High School Tuesday afternoon, according to the school district.

The Alameda Union High School District said in a post on its Facebook page that a small noose was found tied on the fence of the campus tennis courts around 4:00 p.m. Tuesday.

The district said the noose was removed and school administrators notified police, the district and all Alameda High School families.

“A noose is a powerful symbol of intimidation,” the post said. “Please know that we denounce this kind of symbolic violence in the community.”

The school district said there was no evidence that it was a student who left the noose on the tennis court and that it was found on an external fence near the public sidewalk.

The Alameda Police Department has not yet responded to KPIX 5 inquiries about the incident.

Last month, flyers containing a hate message were found outside the Islamic Center of Alameda, while a vandal hurled rocks through windows of the Temple Israel synagogue in Alameda.
