Swampscott superintendent comments on weekend party

SWAMPSCOTT — Superintendent of Schools Pamela Angelakis has released a brief statement regarding the Saturday night party that saw 58 young people summonsed after police uncovered what they believe was underage drinking in a Windsor Avenue basement.

“We are obviously very disappointed in the poor choices made by a large number of students last weekend,” wrote Angelakis. “The administration at the high school is in the process of meeting with students and parents to determine next steps as we adhere to the district’s Chemical Health Policy and the rules of the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) as it pertains to student athletes. It is our hope that students will understand there are consequences for their actions and make better decisions moving forward.”

The young people have been summonsed for being in possession of alcohol while underage. Police also issued a complaint against a parent accused of allowing the youngsters to have alcohol. Officers were alerted to the problem when complaints came in from neighbors who said kids were knocking on their doors and fighting in the street.

Students violating the Chemical Health Policy could find themselves suspended from the school’s extracurricular activities.
