Students at the school say they were quite upset stumble upon the kissing couple at the school, and during school hours on school grounds.
Student Myranda Garber, 16, said she was the one who filmed the infamous kiss.
Garber said other teens had been in a classroom when they heard noises coming from the room next door. Garber said they went to investigate, and when she couldn’t see what was happening, she grabbed her cell phone to record it.
“We saw their legs, so we knew something was going on, but I never thought I would see it personally,” Garber said. “It was crazy.”

“This is on school campus, with our children present, while they are there, while these two are being paid. They are supposed to be educating our children,” said Erin Joslin, another parent.
