Furthermore, any SA senior found in possession of, or under the influence of, a controlled substance may be subject to immediate expulsion from St. Anthony High School.
Schools that violate this policy are subject to be banned from future Grad Nite events. Remember, attending Grad Nite is not a right, it’s a privilege. Don’t ruin it for future graduates.
