Principal sounds alarm after spike in alcohol, drug use among students
SEATTLE -- A local high school principal is voicing concern over a recent uptick of drug and alcohol use among his students. And it’s not just 17- and 18-year-olds. Roosevelt High School says it is having problems with the freshmen class. That’s why Principal Brian Vance sent a letter to parents warning them of the spike. He says the number of kids doing drugs and alcohol during school hours has doubled.
