Grim Reaper day at OHHS

Posted on: April 21, 2017

Friday, April 21, 2017 is Grim Reaper Day at Oak Hills High School. This day is a tradition that was started by the senior class of 2014 and is being continued by this year's senior class. This day is intended to bring awareness to the risks and fatalities caused by distracted driving, which is especially common among teenage drivers. The goal is to make this a very visible and impactful lesson for all of the students.

When the Grim Reaper visited a classroom, the class officers took the seniors into the hall, showed them a few statistics, explained the purpose of this day and distributed the green Grim Reaper Day t-shirts to the seniors in that classroom.

The shirts represent the 3,154 deaths and 424,000 estimated injuries that occurred in 2013 due to distracted driving. Once the seniors received their shirts they were expected not to speak or use social media other than for class participation.
