Emotional Lesson About The Dangers of High Schoolers Drinking

The Scenario on February 26, 2014: Three Clovis East High School teenage boys just finished a big morning test and decided to “relax” with alcohol at their friend Damon’s house during lunch. Alexus, Dylan and Zo realized they had to get back to class to avoid getting “tardies,” and two of them had to take another test. Dylan got behind the wheel. Meanwhile, teacher Stephanie Champion took her daily run at lunch due to a conflict in the evening. Coming back from lunch off-campus were Summer, Sofia and Nate. They watched in horror when Dylan hit Ms. Champion. Dylan didn’t stop. He plowed into the driver’s side of the car sending Summer to the hospital. Zo died at the scene. SkyLife crews are airlifting Champion to emergency. Zo’s actions proved to be fatal and life-shattering.

Clovis Police Work To Keep Alcohol Away From Kids

 

Officers with the Clovis Police Department worked with the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control recently to discourage the consumption of alcohol by minors as part of an ongoing grant through a combination of education and enforcement.

On Wednesday, 2/19/14, the Clovis Police Department hosted an ABC Licensee Education on Alcohol and Drugs (LEADS) class.  Fifty eight business owners and employees from licensed establishments in the city attended the four hour class which focused on how to prevent selling alcohol to minors and how law enforcement and businesses can work together to prevent alcohol related crime.  A presenter with ABC who provides this training across the state spoke with the attendees.

Shorts Allowed Year-round In Clovis Schools

Amidst our warmer than normal winter, the CUSD Governing Board agreed to allow shorts be worn year 'round. Student members of the Interschool Council made this recommendation and the governing board accepted it - ending the season of shorts that used to run from the return from Spring Break to the end of October. 

Still, the shorts dress code holds - they must be no shorter than 6 inches above the kneecap and no shorter than mid-thigh. Shorts must be hemmed and not form fitting. All sportswear - type shorts, bike and spandex, gym, board and frayed shorts are unacceptable.
