The staff of Park Cities People has been busy reporting on what happened at the Palladium Ballroom on Thursday night. I just wanted to clear up a few misconceptions from the earlier post.
1. We’ve spoken to the freshman girl’s mother. She said her daughter was released from Children’s Medical Center on Saturday and returned to school on Monday. “Just know that she is healthy, and she is fine,” the mom said.
2. The three arrested seniors will be allowed to walk across the stage at Moody Coliseum on Friday night and receive their diplomas along with the rest of their classmates. “The students were cited for something that occurred off campus, which is an important distinction,” said HPISD spokeswoman Helen Williams. “If there had been alcohol use on campus, one of the consequences might have involved graduation ceremonies.”
3. The Secret Service is helping the Dallas Police Department investigate the fake IDs. The FBI is not.
We’ll have more in this week’s edition of Park Cities People.
