UPDATE: Chesapeake Public Schools announced Friday that the high school principals have decided that there will be an “after prom” party at all schools for the 2014-2015 school year. 

According to a release, the primary concern of the principals is the safety of the students when leaving the “after prom” parties in the early morning hours and driving home with little to no sleep.

They also say that attendance at the events has declined along with volunteer and financial support.

Data will be collected from each school community regarding the event and a decision for next year’s “after prom” will be made based on an evaluation of student safety, financial support, student attendance, PTSA support, and other volunteer support.
