1Photoshopped shirts in the name of modesty
Tattoos disappeared. Sleeves were added to tank tops. Necklines were raised. However, the editing changes weren't across the board. Some of the girls' photos were left untouched as were all of the boys' photos.
Heber City, a small town of about 12,000, is 40 miles east of Salt Lake City, where the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is headquartered. Mormons encourage modesty and for women, that can mean covering shoulders and avoiding anything short, low-cut or clingy. (Source | Photo)

5A harmless question results in yearbook fat shaming
Throughout the yearbook, students give quotes to questions on various topics. When the question, "When I hear the word 'Twinkie' I think of......" was posed, things got ugly. Half the responses referred to "fat people." It was obvious from one of the quotes the student knew it was wrong. He said, "I think of fat kids! Wait is this going in the yearbook? Oh no no no. I think of the minions from Despicable Me!"
The school district said there was a lack of oversight over the yearbook, and that a key person who was supposed to review it was gone during a critical time.

9A Minnesota high school commits the mother of all typesetting errors
Despite artwork approval by two classes of students and an adviser, the mistake was missed and sent off the printer. With no budget for a reprint, the school decided to hand out stickers to mask the egregious error. (Source)
