Not so at Havre de Grace High School, where students require a visit to the doctor if they miss more than five days of class in a quarter. Otherwise, they flunk all their classes, regardless of their academic performance.The rule was adopted to improve attendance at the Havre de Grace school, after development by a committee of parents, students and teachers.

A high school senior feels overwhelmed by pressures from parents, teachers and peers. A teenage couple converse awkwardly on their first date. Four young friends wrestle with the consequences of drinking and driving. These and other themes form the plots in Drama Therapy, a series of short plays focusing on teen issues. For the past three years, the Havre de Grace High School drama department has presented the plays, calling the skits "100 Minutes That Matter," to parents, faculty and the student body.

For more than half a century, Havre de Grace High School has been home to the Warriors, its symbol an Indian chieftain wearing a headdress. But if the State Board of Education has its way, the Warriors soon will fall by the wayside, along with other American Indian names for teams and mascots, such as Indians, Braves and Redskins. The board voted Tuesday to urge schools to drop the names, which some people find offensive. In Havre de Grace, where a bronze bust of a Indian chieftain sits in the high school lobby and the name Warriors adorns everything from sports jerseys to key chains to bumper stickers, most residents don't see much reason for a change.

So the Harford County Board of Education has voted to approve rebuilding both Havre de Grace High School and Youth's Benefit Elementary School in Fallston, two projects that have had a fair amount of public support. It seemed clear a showdown would be in the offing if one were approved and not the other. Harford County Executive David R. Craig, a lifelong Havre de Grace resident, had put the school board and others on notice that if the Havre de Grace High project weren't funded, nothing would be. Meanwhile, the formidable force of a politically awakened Fallston has appeared to be getting into fighting shape.

Uh, . . . excuse me, please. I hate to interrupt all the fun that the doom-and-gloom crowd are having right now, but this is kinda important.Contrary to popular misconception, not all teen-agers are abusing drugs, dropping out of school or involved in a pregnancy. Take the kids at Havre de Grace High School in Harford County, for example. Would you believe that 25 percent of the students do volunteer work, logging in a total of more than 4,000 hours of community service this year? Sorry to shatter the myth, folks.
