Reported boycott going on in parking lot of North

There will be no senior picnic for seniors at Middletown High School North, Tindall Road. According to one concerned parent, seniors were reportedly told that they were "the worst class senior class in the history of Middletown High School North."

The picnic is an annual tradition that was reportedly scheduled for today. However, it's no picnic at North. Students are reportedly angry and it is being reported that there is a senior boycott that is under way at the school's parking lot. The parent says kids are gathering at parking lot and they are concerned police might be called in.

"The school is going to punish a whole body for one or two individuals. I question the whole motivation of the administration here. I do not understand what is going on with this," the parent said.

For any parents, please feel free to call into the newspaper, 732-957-0070 and let us know how you feel about this. Otherwise, e-mail: Courier Staff Writer Melissa Gaffney is reporting on this story.

UPDATE: As of 9:30 a.m., Courier Senior Staff Writer Alyssa Passeggio reported that students were not in the parking lot. According to a source, the student event had been "headed off." However, more information about this situation will be forthcoming from Courier Staff Writer Melissa Gaffney, on her blog Simply Sable, later today.
