Over the past year, 66 teens died in fatal car crashes. During homecoming we set up 66 mock grave stones to represent those deaths. On each grave stone there were different causes of death; texting, speeding, distracted by passenger, drunk driving, not wearing a seat belt, reckless driving, and drowsy driving.
Before and After the football game an announcement was said "Thank you for coming tonight to the homecoming game, please have fun and drive safely home. Thank you Harvard Operation Click"
During the homecoming game we had guests play baggos with the drunk goggles to demonstrate how alcohol can effect ones ability to play a simple game. We informed those that played after that if they can't play this while drunk then they can't drive drunk.
This years t-shirt giveaway during our peer to peer activities. These are worn by at least one student every day in school. These help bring awareness to the dangers of distracted driving.

Operation Click conducted grade level meetings during homeroom to discuss what it means to be responsible. All students have a level of responsibility either at home, school, work or while driving. We explained what operation click is and how it helps students understand how to be a responsible driver or passenger on the road.
Each grade level came into the gym and discussed how they are responsible in their lives and then gave examples of what it means to be responsible on the road.
Students were asked to come up and add some ways to make positive and negative decisions and how that ties into responsible actions.

Illinois Law now has driver education teach what to do when you get pulled over. Our video this year teaches our students what the proper steps are when this happens. The safety video is shown to all students in the high school during our homeroom period.
