Student wants something done about bad word on sign

I am sending this letter because of a sign. The sign says "Welcome to Bothell." I know nothing is wrong with that, but somebody spray-painted out the "Bot" in Bothell, and now it says "Welcome to hell."

   The sign is up by Canyon Creek Elementary School. I think it was probably painted by a teenager. Every day of school, I have to go past the sign to go to a daycare at Canyon Creek in the morning. It really, really bothers me because I don't feel right that it says a bad word, and that it says a bad word in front of all the people that go by there.

   Please, do something about it!
