River Valley students could be expelled for streaking
River Valley High School has asked that two teenage girls at the school who streaked during halftime of the Friday football game against Yuba City High be expelled, according to Nancy Aaberg, superintendent of the Yuba City Unified School District.
A panel of school district administrators will meet and forward its recommendation on expulsion to school district trustees, she said.
Bruce Morton, director of student welfare and attendance for the school district, said the two girls have been suspended for three days. Morton expects it will be at least a month before the expulsion hearing is held.
Police cited the two students on suspicion of indecent exposure after they took off their clothes in the middle of the football field and then ran across it during halftime as the Yuba City High band played. Honker Stadium was full for the game, the fifth annual Mayor's Cup rivalry between the two schools.
The girls were tracked down by officers on the freshman baseball field after they left the football field and jumped over a small fence next to the track. The youths were released to their parents.
Yacira Morales, student body president for River Valley High, was at the game Friday.
"Overall, I'd say everybody was in shock," Morales said of the reaction.
Morales said she hopes what happened doesn't change people's opinion of River Valley High.
"I definitely don't think our school could have controlled it," she said of the girls' action. Morales said the two girls didn't make anybody aware of what they planned.
The student body president said she doesn't believe either of the girls is on sports teams at the school.
"They both work," Morales said. "That consumed a lot of their time."
