There's a wild story developing in Dixon, one that you'll probably hear and see on radio and TV news in the coming days (although our Patch buddy Carlos Villatoro is all over it already).
We're all heading into prom season, so this seems worthy of discussion:
Thirty-five students from Dixon High School's leadership class were banned from their junior prom when someone allegedly left a bottle of vitamin water containing alcohol on the bus that took them to the dance.
The students — some of whom had participated in an last week dramatizing the dangers of drinking and driving — were stuck outside the venue when they were blocked from attending the event they had planned.
The students said they were bitter about the way that the school's administration handled the situation, partly because the school had not provided a Breathalyzer test that was mentioned in a contract students and parents signed.
The contract states: "Students suspected of being under the influence will be subject to evaluation by DHS Administration and/or local law enforcement, including a Breathalyzer exam. The students who are under the influence will have their parents contacted for pick-up."
If such a thing happened here, how would parents react? How would students react? How would school district officials react? Vote in our poll and share your comments below.
