Exeter High cracks down on dances
The school will have more chaperones than ever Saturday, along with a strong police presence. Principal Sean Kiley said the chaperones will include as many as 20 faculty members, 13 parents, a registered nurse and three police officers. Three custodians will also be working, providing even more sets of eyes on the students.
In addition, Kiley said the school has reduced the number of dances by about 75 percent this year. The only dances planned are this weekend’s Homecoming Dance, a semi-formal dance this winter and a junior and senior prom in the spring.
Last school year’s “March Madness” dance prompted a police and school investigation into allegations of alcohol and drug use.
New rules this year prohibit students from bringing friends from outside Exeter High to the dances.
If trouble arises, Kiley said he has no problem pulling the plug.
