How ridiculous do government schools get? Smoking a celebratory cigar at your graduation is akin to doing drugs? Unreal.
Check it out:
Two Massachusetts high school seniors who were photographed smoking victory cigars at their graduation ceremony reportedly have been kicked off the school’s lacrosse team and will miss the state championship game Saturday.
The seniors were photographed on the front page of a local newspaper celebrating with their classmates at Beverly High School’s graduation ceremony last week, MyFoxBoston.com reported.
School administration officials were notified, though it is not clear how, that two of the seniors pictured are active members on the Panthers’ lacrosse team roster.
While the players are not in violation of a state law, the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association has a strict, no tolerance drug and alcohol policy for student athletes.
“On the morning of Thursday, June 5 the Beverly High School administration was notified of a possible violation of MIAA policy by two student-athletes,” Beverly High School Principal Sean Gallagher said in a statement Friday, according to MyFoxBoston.com.
