FINDLAY, Ohio (AP) — A Christian school in Ohio says it will suspend a student if he attends a public high school prom with his girlfriend.Since graduations are usually boring, the school may be doing the kid a favor by not requiring him to attend the ceremony.
Despite the warning, 17-year-old Tyler Frost says he plans to attend Saturday's dance at Findlay High School, where his girlfriend is a student.
Frost goes to Heritage Christian School. The fundamentalist Baptist school in northwest Ohio forbids dancing, rock music, hand holding and kissing.
Its principal, Tim England, says Frost is facing a suspension that would keep him from attending graduation. Frost is scheduled to receive his diploma May 24.
Frost's stepfather, Stephan Johnson, says the school's rules should not apply outside the classroom.
