Officials from the office of Principal Stanley Teitel have confirmed that senior Peter Kim was summoned to report to the Principal’s office, Room 105, on Wednesday afternoon, shortly before the end of 6th period, and subsequently made his way to the first floor, entering the room at 12:28 PM.
“When I heard the announcement, I had no idea what to expect,” Kim said. “Was I in trouble or was good news awaiting my arrival at room 105? The suspense was overwhelming.”
The announcement, after the traditional exhalation into the mouthpiece, clearly stated, “Peter Kim, please report to the Principal’s office,” and was followed by the sound of a phone being hung up.
Almost immediately the student body reacted to the gravity of the situation. “When that announcement came on the air, the halls went completely silent, and I knew something serious was going on,” senior Danny Aksenov said. “I went searching the school looking for Peter as soon as I heard the announcement. From the depths of the Hudson staircase to the treacherous 10th floor, I looked everywhere.”
All the searching was unnecessary, however, as security footage reveals that Kim left his 5th period Meteorology class, and took the west stair down to the first floor. He then, walking slowly with a fearful look on his face, entered room 105.
“When I saw Peter walking into the room, I knew he would never be the same,” said Junior Brian Turienski. “I remember my first time getting called down. Two years of intensive therapy later, I still haven’t fully recovered.”
“I felt like I was walking to my own execution,” Kim said. “A sense of dread came over me when I heard my name over the intercom.”
Although nobody knows what exactly what transpired, speculation has run rampant throughout the student body. “I’ve heard many theories about what happened to Peter,” senior Joseph Solomon said. “But I know that if my name is ever called to report down there, I’m out of here.”
