Prompted by questions and comments about the annual ceremony at the entrance to school on the first day, known as the senior tunnel, we asked Principal Layne Millington to describe the event.
This is what the principal had to say:
The event has been taking place since at least 2004.
The principal said that he can not say what the event was like in earlier years but in his two years at the school the event has been a celebration.
Seniors are excited to be seniors and they let everyone know this at the entrance.
"It's just loud — real loud," he said.
The morning starts with at least some of the senior class going to breakfast at a student's parents' house, he said.
After breakfast the students get a police escort to the high school.
At the school about 100 seniors form a single line outside the three pillars that hold up the roof of the school's entranceway.
Not just the freshmen, sophomores and juniors but faculty and the principal walk up the stairs at the entrance to the school and walk by the line of seniors.
Some faculty and the school resource officer stand to the side and watch others pass the seniors on the walkway.
The walkway forms a path, about 10 feet wide, between the building on one side and the seniors on the other.
Any student who prefers to enter school other than over the pathway can enter the building through the cafeteria.
The walkway opens at about 7:45 am.
The seniors are wearing senior shirts and some have written in chalk on the pavement. (At the end of the day a group of seniors help custodians clean the walkway of the chalk.)
The seniors have noisemakers but no airhorns.
After all of those who want to walk past the seniors have done so, the seniors run through the school's halls, continuing their hollering.
Then it ends and classes start at 8:10 am.
In the wake of a student bringing a paddle to last year's walk the principal met with juniors last spring to review the ground rules.
There is no physical contact. No throwing things. No silly string.
He will go to the pre-ceremony breakfast and remind seniors of those rules.
The first day of school for all four classes at the high school is Sept. 7.
