Students attending a dance at Lawrence High School last weekend had to do more than just buy a ticket to get in.
They also had to pass a breath-alcohol test, which they all did.
"There were no positive readings," said LHS associate principal Matt Brungardt. "It was really a non-issue."
The breath tests were part of a policy adopted by the school board last month requiring all students be tested for alcohol before admission to school-sponsored dances.
Brungardt said between 150 and 200 students attended the dance, typical attendance for a spring semester social function.
Several students said there was an effort to boycott the dance because of the breath tests.
"I didn't see as many people as I normally do," junior Angela Romero said. "Our dances are usually packed by nine."
