Shorecrest suspends students after party bus incident



In the wake of the party bus incident, the private Shorecrest Preparatory School in St. Petersburg has suspended some students, according to this letter to parents that went out today from headmaster Mike Murphy.

He wrote: Violators have been suspended, have lost privileges, have lost the right to play in their athletic contests this week and will participate in an educational program designed for them.

We don't know how many students were suspended, or for how long. The Gradebook asked and got this e-mailed response from Murphy: "If you ever want to discuss the positive contributions of the students and teachers at Shorecrest give me a call. I have moved on to more productive topics."

The St. Petersburg Times reported today that Durant High in Plant City suspended four students for 10 days for being involved in a separate party bus incident Saturday night.
