Staples Senior Details Cyber-Bullying for NY Magazine

A short but hurtful spate of cyber-bullying at Westport’s Staples High School last week was detailed today by senior Will Haskell on New York Magazine’s website. Image

Headlined “A Gossip App Brought My High School to a Halt,” Haskell’s article tells what happened when a phone ap called Yik Yak swept through the school on Thursday, touching off a wave of anonymous texts that left many students in tears.

“In the course of a few periods, the most private, deplorable thoughts of the Staples student body had been put into writing,” he wrote. “And the worst part was that no one knew who was writing this stuff.”

Setting the scene for readers, Haskell, president of Staples Players, described Staples this way: “It’s a good, medium-sized public school in Westport, Connecticut.
