SUPERINTENDENT There is much evidence that the use of alchohol by young people is on Ihe increase over the entire United States. N o t only are more college age youirg people drinking alcohol, but also high school and even junior high school aged youngs- lers. It appears that this national trend is also prevalent in our area. It has been reported that more and more of our students are consuming alcohol. This increased use of alcohol is occurring during the week as well as on weekends as was formerly the case. We consider it a school re sponsibility to do all we can to prevent students from bring ing alcohol, or other drugs, to school, and to see that students who have consumed alcohol are isolated from other students. Our efforts will be directe at preventing the use of alcoho or other drugs at all schpo [unctions including sporting other evening Our concern is for the health and safety of our students, but o be effective we must have he cooperation of all our parents. The parents must he willing o oppose the use of alcohol or other drugs by their child_en, and to work wilh our school principals in providing ,he necessary sleps to prohibit :he use at school [unctions. There is a the real danger of alcoholism developing in young people. We must all work cooperatively to prevent such an occurrence. We are deeply concerned with this problem and are taking steps to combat its spread. We earnestly en- coura'ge public support in our efforts. Students who either bring alcohol or other drugs to school, or who consume alcohol at school, or who corne to school while under the intluence of such drugs will be punished by the proaer school authorities. We will "expect parents to reinforce this punishment. MKXICO CITY, Mexico (AP) -- The Mexican nrmy has freed So».
