Jennifer Taylorson- Guidance Counselor
Hello everyone. I am Jennifer Taylorson, a guidance counselor here at Grand Heights High School. I am very disappointed in the students involved in this MySpace incident. Here at Grand Heights we are taking this problem very seriously. The material found on this website was extremely offensive and an embarrassment to the school. The students involved have been identified and are being punished accordingly. They have done wrong and should be punished for their actions no matter when they happened. As a school official it is our job to insure a safe and productive learning environment for the students at this school, and reading articles about drug dealing, marijuana, and sodomy by involving students from Grand Heights is very disturbing. We need to be firm on our punishments making students aware that this kind of behavior is not okay. We are looking into a rape accusation made in a letter found in a freshman's locker. This proves that the search of students thought to be involved in this MySpace issue was a good decision on the school's part. Rape is a serious issue and we are looking more into these allegations. At this school we will do everything we can to make sure we are providing the safest learning environment for our students and will go to great lengths to ensure it remains this way.
