The 20 student athletes will miss about 20 percent of the season, and will also have to complete substance abuse counseling, according to the Daily Herald.READ MORE: No Communication With Firefighters Before Baby Was Found Dead Outside Fire Station; Could Baby Boxes Be A Last-Resort Option In Cases Like This?
A number of other students also attended the party, but they did not face school discipline. The school says for those students, it happened in a private home off school grounds, and there was no school code to violate, the newspaper reported.
School administrators did contact the families of the non-athletic team students who appeared in the photos, school district Supt.
