The annual “Smashed” program came once again to the high school on May 11, planting a frighteningly damaged auto on the lawn in front of the school, where it will stand as a stark symbol of driving dangers until June 19.

This Town of Islip initiative, in partnership with the school’s Students Against Destructive Decisions Club, is designed to remind student drivers and passengers that the “100 deadliest days” period between Memorial Day and Labor Day, also including events such as proms, graduations and Independence Day, is actually the most dangerous time of the year for road accidents. 

“Our hope is to save a life and to remind students that one destructive decision can change your life," said East Islip SADD adviser Bridget Lopiccolo.
