On Monday five students got suspended for a week for smoking marijuana in the school parking lot. In protest ten upperclassmen seem to be the culprits of Tuesdays closing of the cafeteria due to a food fight. Along with pulling the fire alarm three times on Wednesday.

Principal Laura Vibelius commented on the unrest. “Not so much unrest because of suspension, but because of summer vacation being so near,” she said. She sees no continuation of these “incidents” in the future.
