...Recipients of the missive were urged to consider opening their homes this Saturday for parties as "a safe, secure place for students to have fun," adding if adults "provide the alcohol, you can have peace of mind knowing that they did not acquire it illegally. Condoms were included with the letters--which were written on Portland Public Schools stationery--since "STD epidemics have spread through other high school communities and we want to prevent such an outbreak as best we can." The letter was purportedly written by "The Lincoln High School Faculty and Administration." [continued]

Did the writer get paid extra for alliteration?

Also, I like how the associated picture is that of a woman's cleavage...

That being said: they don't know how students got hold of the mailing list? If this high school is anything like mine was then the students probably know more about the school's systems then the school itself does.

This actually reminds me of a story my Mom told me about when she was a kid.
Her parents used to hold dances for the local young folk at their home. Now this was during the early '20s and they lived in a very conservative Lutheran community, and this practice was frowned upon by their neighbors. But the way my grandparents looked at it was that they knew where their kids were and what they were doing.
