VIDEO: Parents unhappy with inappropriate yearbook quotes


SAN TAN VALLEY, Ariz. (AP/CNN) — An Arizona school is apologizing for printing yearbooks with inappropriate messages.

Reports say messages referencing sex and drugs and disturbing senior quotes made it into the Poston Butte High School’s yearbook.

“Me and my boy decided to take a shower together in the locker room naked while everyone was taking pictures,” read one quote.

Another comment that really upset parents, “I came to this school hating everyone, but I’m leaving hating everyone and myself.”

The Florence Unified School District thinks about 15 to 20 inappropriate comments were published. The district says it did not notice the comments until after the yearbooks had been distributed.

“I don’t know how all that got overlooked,” parent Carrie Ribeiro said.

Principal Steven Tannenbaum sent out a letter Wednesday to apologize to San Tan Valley families and students. The letter says the school’s yearbook sponsor will be replaced next school year.

The English teacher who oversaw the production of the yearbook will not be in charge again next year, according to the school district.

The district says 462 yearbooks were sold for as much as $75. Students unhappy with the yearbooks can ask for stickers to cover the inappropriate comments or a refund.
