As hundreds of students looked on, emergency workers from around Ventura County converged on Camarillo High School on Friday, staging a head-on fatal crash to advertise the perils of drinking and driving. Four students--three in one car and one in the other--portrayed the drunken driver and his victims. During the simulation, firefighters used the Jaws of Life to free trapped victims, and one student was rushed to a local hospital by rescue helicopter.

The board of trustees of the Oxnard Union High School District voted unanimously Wednesday to buy a 12-acre parcel that will be used to build a new parking lot and community playground next to Camarillo High School. The proposed lot, which will cost $3.1 million, will make the journey to and from Camarillo High School safer for students who drive to school, officials said. Students park across the street and must dodge heavy traffic on Mission Oaks Boulevard to get to classes.

After a snafu in mailing flyers to parents, Camarillo High School officials are trying to get the word out on their annual back-to-school night. Principal Terry Tackett said the person who usually prints address labels to parents of the school's 2,200 students was unable to do the job this year. So the school was left with piles of unaddressed flyers. Back-to-school night, an annual event when parents can visit students' classrooms and meet their teachers, will be held at 7 p.m. Thursday.
