Another thing for interested parties to think about.

Personally I think they were warned and went ahead anyway possibly.

This based on only the news story.

I think that it is generally a minority that annoy the rest of the populace.

Parents can't have it both ways. If precious little Johnny or Johnnette got written off then injured, raped or killed, or ended up pregnant, it would be 'the School's fault, they oughta have done this or oughta have done that'.

Even if you arrange an official after-Ball with tight security, restricted (ticketed) admission and all that drama, they will just go have an after-after Ball party some other place. Cancelling the Ball completely for next year was the best thing they could ever have done.

As an ex-BoT Chair, I can tell you that after-Ball functions are the biggest nightmare imaginable, even when well organised and supervised by good and trustworthy parents. You just pray you won't get THAT phone call from the hospital, or worse, the police, followed by the media baying for blood.
