Ah, high school football. The tradition, the camaraderie, the breathalyzer tests you have to pass to get in. At a Phoenixville Area High School football game over the weekend, students attending the game without their parents had to pass a breath test in order to be admitted.
This is not a new policy for school events: Routinely in many districts, students are tested for alcohol in order to attend dances or other extracurricular activities. This is the first time tests were done at a Phoenixville football game, but in a statement officials say the district has done it for other events. Fox got details on the reasoning for the tests: “Administrators declined to talk on camera, but tell FOX 29 they heard some students were going to the game drunk, so they took action.”
