Extra security planned at West Johnston High graduation

Posted June 7, 2010

— There will be extra security, including metal detectors, at Friday's graduation ceremony for West Johnston High School, officials said.

School officials said the security is the result of a note left behind after someone vandalized the school this weekend.

In a phone call, West Johnston's principal told parents the sheriff's office and State Bureau of Investigation are following all leads.

    The thread listed below is actually an excellent location concerning this story. Alot of people who actually live in that area and who have kids at the school are having updated conversations about it. The person(s) responsible sure are going to great lengths to advertise what their intentions are. What a shame so few have to ruin it for so many. Wouldn't be surprised if one day they simply start recieving their high school diplomas via email as an attachment or simply come by the school to pick it up at the front office. Unbelievable.

    If the children are our future then the outlook is bleak!

    This is a kids prank and the school system not only needs to throw the book at this kid, but they need to hold these parents accountable also. Make them serve time, inconvience them, send them to a parenting class. Some kids these days have a sick sense of humor and severe punishment and public scorning are the only thing that I think may work.
