Staples “Victims”

Every 30 minutes a student was taken out of class at Staples High School today and “killed” as part of the “Grim Reaper Day” anti-drinking and driving campaign. Being killed meant that they were painted white with black eyes, they had a story of their death on a sign, and they were not allowed to speak the rest of the day. Sophomore Katie Hallock (l) and freshman Erica Adler were two of the “victims.” (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Galen Blumenthal for
