HARVARD, Mass. (AP) – Offensive graffiti painted on a rock outside a Massachusetts school has been covered up by a group of students bearing cans of white paint and rollers.

Swastikas, homophobic symbols and profanities were found Friday on the rock outside the Bromfield School in Harvard. Superintendent Linda Dwight says the rock is a place where students usually paint positive messages.

The Boston Globe reports that about 50 people showed up at the school Saturday to paint the rock white.

Bromfield graduate Emma Franzeim helped organize the painting by raising money for paint. She says she wanted to help students make the town proud.

Harvard is a town of about 6,500 residents about 30 miles northwest of Boston. The school has about 700 students in grades six through 12.

Police continue to investigate.
