Seattle bans 11 students in hazing case

SEATTLE — Eleven Garfield High School students suspected of participating in an off-campus hazing incident have been barred from campus until Seattle school officials decide whether discipline is warranted.

The Seattle Times reported that Seattle Public Schools spokeswoman Teresa Wippel said eight of the 11 have also been identified by Seattle police as suspects in the case.

The students were told Friday not to return to class on Monday. Wippel said such emergency expulsions generally don’t last more than two weeks.

Garfield Principal Ted Howard said he and a school resource police officer broke up a gathering of about 100 students Sept. 27 at a park. Howard said some students were being paddled, were wearing diapers, had eggs thrown at them and had shoe polish all over their bodies.
