EDSS students ran Whiteout Day to emphasize the effects of a death in the school from a crash involving an impaired driver. 15 students dressed in black had their faces painted white. The students attended all classes and lunch, but did not speak to anyone during the whole day. Teachers were approached the day before to ensure that they would not be called upon to make presentations. The white-faced students represented the person who was there the day before, but after the crash all that remains is the memory.
