Northern Secondary School is implementing a breathalyzer policy for their upcoming prom at the Eglinton Grand.

Any students with alcohol on their breath will be denied entry into prom, and their parents will be called.

Students and parents are torn on the school’s new policy.

But teachers at Malvern Collegiate Institute, who have had a similar policy in place for 14 years, say it has worked to curb drunkenness and ensure a safe event for students.
