SEATTLE, WA - The Seattle School District says nine Garfield High School students have been suspended for their roles last month's hazing incident.
The district announced Friday that six students received suspensions ranging from five to nine days and are already back in school. Another student was suspended for 15 days and two others for 20 days.
The district initially banned 11 students from campus during the investigation. Two of them turned out to have been misidentified and their records were cleared.
All of those suspended are appealing the punishment.
On September 27th, Garfield Principal Ted Howard helped break up an after-school gathering of about 100 students at a nearby park. Underclassmen were being paddled, wearing diapers and had eggs thrown at them.
