A prestigious Wallingford boarding school apparently has its own group of “Mean Girls” and the high school has banned students from using Facebook because of it.
Choate Rosemarie Hall, whose esteemed alumni include President John F. Kennedy, Michael Douglas and several Olympic athletes, has blocked students from accessing the social networking site through the school network since last Tuesday, according to The News, Choate's school newspaper.
While that statement is vague, sources told the New Haven Register that the Facebook ban comes after senior girls allegedly created an electronic "burn book" on part of the site.
In "Mean Girls," the girls cut out other girls’ pictures, paste them in a scrapbook and add insulting comments with each photo, creating the "burn book."
In the six years since the movie, several burn book sites and applications have surfaced on the Web.
