Not a single student failed the test, according to the article.
On Sept. 24, the Portsmouth School Committee created a new policy, allowing school officials to perform Breathalyzer tests at school events, including dances. This Saturday's homecoming dance was the first time Portsmouth High School put the policy in practice.
The Breathalyzer tests, however, were not given to students suspected of underage drinking.
Students were asked to draw a ticket, which selected them for the Blood Alcohol Count test. If they refused, the student was not be allowed into the dance.
In addition, students who took the Breathalyzer were entered into a raffle to win a prize. According to The Portsmouth Times, five students went home with a gift card from the raffle.
