HOLLADAY -- A group of elementary students united Friday in a stand against drugs.

Students at Morningside Elementary School in Holladay dressed in red shirts and stood hand-in-hand outside the building. The "red ribbon" they created encircled the whole school.

"We're hugging the school and protecting it from drugs," a second-grader named Delaney explained.

Schools across the nation celebrate Red Ribbon Week in different ways, but the message is the same. It promotes an anti-drug, alcohol and tobacco atmosphere for children and schools.
