Halloween Prank Hits New Buildings

Last Thursday, October 31, an unknown party threw eggs at various buildings on the school campus. The main target of this “egging” was the new 900 wing, although the 700 wing was also hit. The unknown party pulled the prank between midnight and 6 a.m. on Halloween night, the results of which the staff found when they arrived in the morning the next day.

The school administration was not amused with the prank.

“Stuff like this I don’t have a lot of tolerance for because our community takes such good care of us, our custodians work so hard to make sure these places are clean,” Principal Wynne Satterwhite said. “Basically, it took 3 hours of somebody’s time doing cleanup…now we’re 3 hours behind somewhere.”

This type of prank has happened before, though not for a period of time. The last “egging” happened a few years ago. The school is looking to find the perpetrators of this incident.

“I think the thing that was the most disturbing and upsetting to me was that it was the new building,” Satterwhite said. “The eggs, because of the protein in them, do a huge amount of damage, especially to paint and to metals.”
