With only a few weeks left until school's out, Hazleton is set to hold their annual semi-formal dance. However, not every senior in the school district will be attending Prom despite their desires too.
Jackie Meiser and her boyfriend, Austin, were hoping to attend the district's Prom, that was until High School principal, Mr. Petrone and superintendent, Dr. Butler denied the two entry. Jackie claims that school officials wouldn't even offer them or their parents any particular reason as to why they can't go.
Although the two are cyber schooled, school policy states that any student in cyber school is permitted to join in extra-curricular activities just as long as they reside in district limits and that their respectful school doesn't provide it. In this instance, Jackie and Austin should - for every justifiable reason - be granted access to Prom.
We'll be reaching out to the school district tomorrow morning for a direct quote from Dr. Butler himself.
