Buckeye Career Center's prom is Saturday, April 1st and students are being asked to play it safe while attending. As always, students are encouraged students to stay sober and drug-free but BCC is again taking an extra step to protect students. Each prom attendee will be required to take a breathalyzer test, by blowing into the handheld machine, before entering. The tests will be administered by trained BCC staff. This is the second year breathalyzers have been used at prom. "We want to make sure that our students enjoy their prom the right way," said Superintendent Bob Alsept. "The use of breathalyzers help reinforce the importance of our young people making wise decisions. We want our students to be safe and have fun." New Philadelphia Police officers will also be on site to handle any violations.
This year's prom theme is "Hollywood Nights" and tickets can be obtained by Buckeye Career Center students in the Graphic Arts lab. Walk-ins run from 6:30-7:10 p.m., with the promenade from 7:15-8 p.m. and prom wraps up at 11 p.m.
