Dear Parents and Students,

We know our students are excited to be back at school and are looking forward to tomorrow night's football game.  Last year, we were very pleased with the number of students who attended our sporting events and supported our teams in a positive way.  To ensure safe and enjoyable Friday evenings again this fall, we will continue to communicate our expectations for appropriate behavior and hold students accountable for poor choices.  Below are the guidelines that will remain in place for all athletic events for the 2018-19 school year.

Any student who is brought to the attention of administration for possibly being under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol will be:

  • Brought to one of the police officers on duty who will speak with the student.  At that time, if it is determined that the student is under the influence, the student will be turned over to the police who will escort the student to Warren Police Headquarters.  A parent will be notified and must report to the police station to pick up their child.  The student must then be taken for a drug/alcohol test within two hours, as per school policy.
  • If the student tests positive, the student will be suspended from school for three to ten days and no longer be able to attend any events or activities for sixty days.  In addition, the student will forfeit their right to park at school immediately if the student has parking privileges.  Underclass students forfeit their right to park on campus during their junior, and possibly, senior years.

Thank you for your anticipated support.  We encourage all parents to discuss this with their child.

Sincerely,

WHRHS Vice Principals
