Students learn punishment for alcohol

Cairo- A hearing officer has ruled twelve Cairo High School students must finish the year at Crossroads Alternative School for having alcohol on a Beta Club trip in Atlanta.

     They will also not be allowed to participate in any extracurricular activities, or drive to school. The students are finishing a 10-day suspension today. Cairo High School Principal Tim Helms says Crossroads will offer them the support they need. "It's almost certainly one on one instruction. It's a very structured environment," he says.

     Two teachers who chaperoned the students on the trip are on paid administrative leave. School officials will only say they will be given a hearing in the next couple of weeks.
