Putnam Valley High School's Bonfire Reinstated after Protest at Board Meeting
Middle or elementary school students must have parental supervision at event

They were there to voice a collective protest over the banning of the now six-yearold tradition of the bonfire that is one of the high points of School Spirit Week.
