Shallowater High Seniors Banned From Prom Because of Alcohol
A group of Shallowater High School seniors will not be at this year's prom, that's because they've been banned from it. A viewer e-mail tipped NewsChannel 11 off to the incident; students were found drinking alcohol on a field trip last month and part of their punishment is not being able to attend the dance. NewsChannel 11's Kealey McIntire has more from parents students and the principal.

"I don't condone what they did, and they're being punished for what they did. But, the school needs to acknowledge they're giving me as a parent a handbook, this is the only information I have to go by. This is it, and it's not being followed," the parent said.

The Shallowater High School Principal gave NewsChannel 11 a copy of the Texas Education Code which states any student found drinking during school functions will be sent to an alternative education program, and won't be able to attend any school functions.

Principal Tom Johnson says he's just following the rules. "If a child is in disciplinary alternative, it's also a state guideline they may not participate in school functions, or be on school grounds," Johnson said.

Shallowater's prom is May 20th.

    For Octavio Armendariz, using the bathroom while he’s home is no big deal. When the autistic eight-year-old is out in public with his mom, it’s a different story.
