Suspensions Cause Unrest Among East High Students (Lede Exercise #1)

Last Monday, five students at East High were put on week-long suspension for being caught smoking marijuana in the school parking lot.

Disgruntled students protested the suspensions by causing a cafeteria-closing food fight Tuesday, followed by three false alarms sounding on Wednesday.

Principal Laura Vibelius reported there was general unrest among the students, “Not so much unrest because of the suspensions, but because of summer vacation being so near.”

Ten upperclassmen were also put on week-long suspension, with Vibelius stating she sees no continuation of these “incidents” in the near future.

    You need to be careful when you begin a story “Last Monday.” Is it going to be timely? Is it really a when story?

    This story needed a summary lead. Try to use the Principal’s quote to tie everything together.
