Lede Exercise #1

Principal vs Protest: The East High Story

10 upperclassmen and East High were punished for protesting last week. The alarms were sounded falsely three times last Wednesday by disgruntled students. It is said that there were ten upperclassmen responsible and they each were suspended for a week. These students were protesting the suspension of five other students who were caught smoking marijuana in the parking lot on school grounds. There was also a food fight in the cafeteria Tuesday, this food fight shut down the cafeteria for the rest of the day.

Principal Laura Vibelius said that there was general unrest around the whole school and its student body. She was quoted as “Not so much unrest because of suspensions, but because of summer vacation being so near.” She says that there should be no continuation of these incidents in the future.
