Nothing good happens after 12 o'clock.

It is so sad that these kids have damaged their school, ruined their education, and future for a job. Kids need to realize that their are consequences for their actions and this could get them jail time which will ruin their lives. The kids and their parents should have to pay to get the school cleaned up. This will cost the parents a lot of money to get the kids out of trouble. The kids need to learn a hard lesson for their actions.

In past years you have to wonder why does this keep happening do they not warn the SENIORS if you repeat what happened last year...I mean clearly it doesn't seem to be getting thru to the students.

This does not happen every year. They usually only spray paint the street like last year. One parent had the nerve to say "At least these kids are drug addicts." Like these families are so good that these children could never be drug addicts. Really? No they may not be drug addicts but they are just as stupid.
