There will also be an individual dressed as the "Grim Reaper" who appears periodically throughout the school day. The pretend victims are taken out of class, made-up in white faces and dressed in black t-shirts to symbolize death, and then returned to their classrooms to continue their day. By the end of the day, every student has one or more "deceased" classmates present in the classroom with him or her, and on this note, the school day ends. The next morning a wrap-up assembly is held featuring those who played roles in the previous day's drama, including the "crash" victims and their parents. The assembly is held to listen and comment about how the community is affected when we lose love ones because of bad choices.
