Those wild drama club kids are at it again! Where was the adult supervision? Even good kids do dumb things. I hope the punishment (cancellation of the play) fits the crime but it's hard to tell because the article is so vague.

Why bother even reporting such a non-news story?

Well, they lived up to the name of their group:
" The drama club "!!!!
Also, I love how the name of the school board chair is Leslie Nielsen.
Kind of funny.

Nice story. About nothing. If you don't have the full story to report, don't report it. Who decides to run this crap?

It is ok to say S.E.X. in the story, rather than being coy about it.

My mom was 16 when she fell in love with Dad (married 51 years)...I suspect they even had S.E.X. when they were teenagers....In fact I suspect that humans have been this way since there has been humans....Stop Punishing/Criminalizing human behavior......even if YOU are offended by it....It is none of anyones business but the individual!

There were three dozen students there. The police were apparently called. Must be someone you can ask about what happened? Maybe we should get a reporter on this. Seems like the real story is why are they so intent on keeping the details secret? Its not the crime - its the cover up. "out of hand''crossed the line'. Sounds like there was something that threatened someone's safety? Maybe politically incorrect? My guess is the cops and the school administration are pals and want to keep a lid on whatever it was.

Amazing how if it were athletes, the punishment would have been much more severe. And a Saturday morning forum? Come on, anyone at the school will tell you it was Saturday school, which is the new terminology for Saturday DETENTION. Stop trying to sugarcoat the terms. How come Mr. Collins looks the other way because this is the Arts Department and not the Athletic Department. Great way to teach our kids double standards. What a joke. Remember the Elk River football team?

The principal is an idiot for cancelling this. These are innocent high school kids just being kids. I'm sure it was relatively harmless and now somthing that they worked so hard for has been taken away from them. Now they have more time to get into trouble because they have nothing to work towards or be involved in this spring. So sad.

If this really is to be used as a teachable moment, then let the teachable moments come out. Are we trying to teach or cover up?

Teachable moment.... yeah right. Teach them that covering it up is the best thing to do. Next time they'll learn not to say anything to anyone.

This article has as much non-information as the letter the principal sent out to the parents (I've seen it). A whole page full of nothing that scared people half to death. The best way to get all these rumors going is to not be straightforward with the public in the first place, which was pointed out to the principal. Hastings is doing a fine job with that.

If there was nothing illegal done at this get togther, no crimnals, hmmmm this might be an overreach by the school and principal. or Maybe they couldn't sell enough tickets for the play so they cancelled it. This whole article is dumb

Brilliant post Jane! I would venture to say Mr. Collins looked the other way because it would not look right to make an issue of the possibility of "gay sex" occuring at this party. This party was aptly named "grease" for more then one reason.

I know what happened. I spoke to someone that was there, and she told me what happened. I'd tell all of you, but then I'd have to kill you. Sorry.
