Ten East High Upperclassmen Suspended for multiple false Alarms

Three false fire alarms went off last Wednesday at East High.  The culprits of the alarms was a group of frustrated students protesting suspensions from the week prior.

According to East High’s principal, there were five students suspended for a week after they were caught smoking marijuana in the school parking lot.  A group of students, upset with the suspensions given to those caught in the parking lot, decided to set off some fire alarms three times throughout the Wednesday school day.

The alarms weren’t the only “protest” incident that week.  On that Tuesday, a food fight broke out that would close the cafeteria.  After these two incidents, a total of ten upperclassmen were suspended for their behavior.

The principal didn’t seem too worried about the situation getting any worse. “Not so much unrest because of suspensions, but because of summer vacation being so near”, she said, “I see no continuation of these incidents in the near future.

    Organization is fine, top to bottom.
