Teen drinking, a party bus, and suspensions make headlines in Issaquah

The recent suspension this week of nine Issaquah High School students for alcohol infractions and the investigation of a bus driver who allegedly bought the students the alcohol has prompted a lively community discussion. Here’s the news, reported by The Issaquah Press:

Issaquah High School administrators suspended nine students for alcohol infractions in connection to the party bus incident. Police and school administrators started investigating the incident after intoxicated students arrived at the Oct. 22 homecoming dance.

Readers leaving comments seem to disagree about how severe the penalties should have been for the students, with the suspensions reported to be as long as 90 days.
