The at the seventh- and eighth-grade middle school dance on Friday, April 20 raises questions about how Stonington Public Schools admit students to school dances.
Middle school students reported seeing a drunk, sick student in the bathroom and later in the office with a police officer and other adults. The said there was no indication of intoxication or alcohol at the school dance and Stonington Public Schools officials reported, “that there were no drug and/or alcohol related issues at the dance.”
While what did or did not happen isn’t clear, some community members are asking if the Stonington Public School system should rethink the way it admits students to dances.
Several high school schools in the area including use alcohol breath tests before school dances. Do you think middle school students should have to take such a test to enter a school dance?
